Joe Saunders: I'm as good as Dan Haren

Joe Saunders' debut with the Arizona Diamondbacks went just fine, though Arizona lost in 11 innings to the Philadelphia Phillies.

Saunders gave up two runs in seven innings. Afterward, he told the Arizona Republic's Nick Piecoro, "I think I'm just as good as [Dan] Haren."

The Angels traded Saunders and three minor-league pitchers for Haren on Sunday.
