The animosity towards Dan Haren here is astounding.

No it's not

I never felt like Haren wasn't putting forth a credible effort.   The only criticism I'd have is when he denied he had any ailments, and Rizzo put him on the DL anyway and he pitched better coming off it, which lent credibility to the thought that he actually WAS hurt.

But most of our players suffer the same conceit - "I'm not hurt, everything is good, leave me alone" even if their arm is falling off.

It's a good thing the battleship New Jersey has heavy armor or else it'd be in line for some dents.

How can you get an ERA that high?  What's the formula again?

Derek Norris Finds the Opposite Field

by Daniel Rathman, Baseball Prosectus

The Wednesday Takeaway
Back in February, when Athletics pitchers and catchers were settling into the team’s spring training camp in Phoenix, Derek Norris spoke with San Francisco Chronicle beat writer Susan Slusser about the work he put in during the offseason and the changes that he planned to implement this year.

Norris’s list included the customary claims players often make when they report, telling Slusser than he had cut out fast food and junk food, shedding 10 pounds to improve his durability and endurance. More interestingly, though, the 25-year-old said that he had reworked his swing in an effort to hit more balls the other way. Norris attributed his pull-happy ways to his front hip “leaking out” too early in his swing, a flaw that prevented him from taking pitches to right field.
...
49 of Norris’ 65 hits last year landed to the left of dead-center field and only 16 went to the right of it. That’s about a 3-to-1 ratio of pull-side to opposite-field knocks.
...
What stood out on Wednesday is that two of Norris’ three hits went to right field, and the third landed just left of dead-center. The Indians pitched him both outside and inside, and regardless of the location, Norris geared his swing to go to right field.

Better start than one Alfonso Soriano.  Well before today's hit I guess.
