Well, the day has come for one of my PC guys to get traded...again.
For the 5th time since 2003, Vazquez has switched teams. He has ben an Expo, a Diamondback, a Yankee, a White Sock, a Brave and now, a Yankee again.
Honestly, I hate this move from a collection standpoint. I am a fan in no way, shape or form of the Yankees. Just being traded to the Yanks will increase prices on Javy's stuff and make it tougher to land. Not to mention, we will most likely see an increase in his WHIP and ERA, though his wins should also rise as well.
I know his last go around in New York wasn't the memorable (he did make the All Star game, but it is the only season in his career that he made less then 20 starts) and his second half was pretty terrible (in his defense, he was hurt).
But, New Yorkers, welcome him with open arms. Your team gave up a below average corner outfielder, a solid minor league pitcher and a PTBNL, who may or may not end up being a decent player. As far as I am concerned, giving up two unproven talents and a crappy player for a bonafide top ten to twelve starter in the league.
Pat yourselves on the back Yanks fans. This trade opens the door for management to throw some money at an outfield or DH type player.
Paging Mr. Holliday. Mr. Holliday to the Bronx please.
