Dan Haren Yes, that's a photo of Dan Haren spitting suflower shells during Friday night's game. The way people are burning through Haren file art, expect to see photos of him grocery shopping and tying his shoes if this thing drags on much longer.

At any rate, rumors about Haren's imminent departure from Arizona abound today, most of them centering around the Yankees.

According to Twitter links from Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated, the Yankees and Diamondbacks seem to be haggling over who pays how much of the $33 million due Haren on the rest of his contract, and how the financial obligation affects what players move.

The Diamondbacks wanted the Yankees to take all of Haren's salary and send them a package that included Joba Chamberlain. That's not happening. They countered with, instead of Chamberlian, sending pitching prospects Ivan Nova, Zach McAllister and two others. And the Diamondbacks apparently are trying to unload Chad Qualls and Chris Snyder (who has at least $6.5 million left on his contract after this year) in the deal, but the Yankees have balked. Aaron Heilman also has been mentioned as a possible throw-in by Arizona.

A source tells the New York Daily News the Yankees want to make the deal, but "but not at all costs." Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic quotes D-backs CEO Derrick Hall as saying the Yankees are involved, but not necessarily the front-runner.

Bottom line: It seems a virtual certainty Haren will move, and the Diamondbacks are targeting pitching and holding out for the best deal.
