Javier Vazquez went 15-10 with a 2.87 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with the Atlanta Braves in 2009, but only went .500 with a bloated 5.32 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with the New York Yankees in 2010.
In 2011, he posted a 13-11 record, 3.69 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.
Go figure—historically, Vazquez is more effective in the NL.
According to Ken Rosenthal, he is on the fence of retirement but Joe Capozzi thinks the Florida Marlins could re-sign their starter, who went 6-0 with a 0.60 ERA in his final six starts of 2011.
You'd have to think Vazquez receiving the $10 million offer Capozzi suggested is contingent on the developments with Jose Reyes, Albert Pujols and Mark Buehrle.
