It’s hard to judge whether former Arizona Diamondback pitcher Dan Haren is handling his recent retirement well.

What we do know is that the result is quite entertaining. Haren has always been in a class of his own when it came to social media, but a session on an exercise bike Monday morning led to a string of revealing tweets that told us how the 35-year-old approached his 13-year career as a starting pitcher.

It’s hard to imagine all of these admissions being without embellishment. This one, however …

Haren’s career ended after his 2015 season with the Miami Marlins.

He capped it with a 3.75 ERA and 1.18 WHIP through 391 games, 380 of which were starts. Haren started 33 games as a D-back in each of the 2008 and 2009 seasons and was traded to the Los Angeles Angels in 2010 after 21 more starts for Arizona. He also played for the Athletics, Cardinals, Nationals, Dodgers and Cubs.
