What a shock, a New York sportswriter has already declared Javier Vazquez to be dead and buried, and has pulled the name of another pitcher that the Yankees should have pursued out of his ass.

It’s an easy job, target one of your best players, find another player who has performed better in a very very small sample size that you could have had instead, and bam an article.

As a Yankee fan I was disgusted by the fans who booed Javy.

Neither do I. But you forget that New York sports journalism does not require opinions to be based on evidence or fact.

Because no such article/thread/post exists, good sir =).

Classic case of a New York reporter getting way ahead of himself. There’s a reason I stopped reading any and all sports sections in these papers.

HA! Too funny. Another jerkoff NY “sports” writer re-writing history.
BTW: Vasquez does suck…he’s an NL pitcher.

Sheff’s new team? I’m guessing the giants, or maybe the reds.

Does no one else remember his first half with the Yanks in ’04?

10 wins, 3.56 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 95 K’s, and just 32 BB’s in 118.6 IP

He is capable of being an effective pitcher–even on the Yankees. Give him at least ten starts to prove himself.

It’s forgotten because he hurt his arm and ended up pitching through pain, thus making himself ineffective.

Now that there is the fact that many have long since forgotten. He didn’t choke up. He was pitching hurt. If anything, he took a major risk of ruining the rest of his career for the sake of the Yankees (at the time, I don’t believe they had anyone who could fill in as a starter effectively or for a long period of time). Fans should be grateful.
