Surprise Players For Haren

During the Winter Meetings, there wasn't much talk of the Indians or Reds pursuing Oakland starter Dan Haren.  However, there's buzz that both Ohio teams have interest. 

The Tribe definitely inquired on Haren.  See Susan Slusser's article today, where she notes that Asdrubal Cabrera was "believed to be an A's target."  The Indians don't want to part with the young infielder, a player they stole from the Mariners in June of 2006 for Eduardo Perez.  Paul Hoynes further solidifies it, saying Mark Shapiro has spoken to Billy Beane about Haren. 

Slusser believes the Reds "might turn their focus toward Haren with an offer that could include starter Homer Bailey" if they can't get Erik Bedard.  Slusser's report is unclear whether Wayne Krivsky has had conversations with Billy Beane about Haren.  Ken Rosenthal says the Reds are "pushing for Haren," which does indicate talks.
