Vazquez lands with the Marlins


Via MLBTR, Javy Vazquez has agreed to a one-year deal for some unknown amount of money with the Florida Marlins. It makes sense, NL team in a big park nice and close to his home in Puerto Rico. Javy still has to pass a physical before the deal becomes official and the Yankees get their extra draft pick, and I guess that’s not a given considering his utter lack of stuff at the end of the season. Either way, I wish him luck and hope the Yankees get to face him in the 2011 World Series.

    I really hope he kills it.

  2. J says:

    If he can regain his 2009 form, Vazquez and Josh Johnson could be a pretty nasty 1-2 punch.

  3. What Won't Jesus Montero Do says:

    Face him in the WS so that he gets so close to a championship he can smell it but we sweep the Marlins and knock Javy out in the first inning of whatever game he starts?

  4. ultimate913 says:

    If he regains 2009 form, Vazquez would be reaching Pavano type, not coming back to the Yankees ever status, in my book.

    But I wish him the absolute best with the Marlins.

    Can we pray that pick outperforms Arodys in the future.

  6. Nathan says:

    Last year when I said “I hope someone makes Javy sleep with the fishes” this is NOT what I meant. ;P

    Hope he does well…professional guy. He just can’t cut it in NY.

  7. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Yay pick.

  8. Zack says:

    Hope he bounces back in 2011.

  9. JerseyDutch says:

    Good luck to Javy. He didn’t work out here but I always thought he was an OK guy.

    marlins/vazquez in the WS? i like our odds

    • Chops says:

      Depending on how the rest of the offseason plays out, there’s a decent chance the Marlins end up being the worst team in the NL East.

  11. I am already a really big fan of pick 35-38.

  12. Doug says:

    rosenthal has the deal at $6-$7M

  13. Jerome S says:

    Wait… the Marlins just traded Vazquez for the entire Mariners lineup…

    (this is a joke, btw)

  14. Chris says:

    I hope not…the marlins are 2-0 in the world series.

  15. AJ says:

    Honestly, once a player leaves pinstripes I could care less how he does with another team. Especially a team that beat us in a world series.
