Another game for Javy Vazquez… another day the Yankees bullpen needs to work in overtime.
The Yankees have 6 losses this year and three were thrown by Vazquez.
Remember him? The guy who people were saying was a horse. The guy people kept saying was a Cy Young candidate?
He has an ERA of 9.00 so far.
That’s an earned run an inning.
And he also averages 5 innings a start. Wasn’t he a bulldog innings eater?
As of this writing, an average Vazquez start is leaving after 5 innings with 5 runs on the board.
The Yankees needed to trade away Melky Cabrera and prospect Arodys Vizcaino for that? How could signing Jarrod Washburn be worse?
This trade stunk in December, it stunk in spring training and it stinks now for the Yankees.
And I get a certain amount of glee pointing that out.
