As I get ready to leave the ranks of New York City's homeless population, I can't help but think about the Yankees number 4 starter, Javier Vazquez.
Vazquez's ineffectiveness this season has been well-documented. No need for me to go into the details. They're too boring at this point. What is more interesting right now is speculation about what will happen to him. Will he stay in the rotation, or will he be moved? If he is moved, will it be to the bullpen? If not the bullpen, will it be to the DL? If not the DL, will it be to another team?
Does he even know?
I've spent the last six months not knowing where I was going to end up. Would I end up moving to another borough? Would I end up moving in with family in the Atlanta, Georgia area? Would I end up with family in the Washington, DC area? Would I end up in another shelter? Turns out I'm going to be not too far from where I used to live, in the same zip code. We can only hope, for Javier Vazquez's sake, that wherever he goes, he ends up back where he used to "live" as well, in the Yankees rotation.
Readers, wish me luck as I start this new chapter in my life, and let's all wish Javy Vazquez luck as he continues his quest to re-write the Yankees chapter in his career.
