Vazquez Would Like To Pitch For Marlins

Javier Vazquez has told associates that he’d like to pitch for the Marlins, according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The right-hander would like to return to the National League and Florida has added appeal, since Miami is relatively close to Puerto Rico, his home country.

Vazquez has become the Marlins’ top pitching target, but they may not be able to afford him. Rodriguez hears that Vazquez has received some offers that could price him out of the Marlins’ grasp. After struggling through the 2010 season, Vazquez wasn’t expecting to see offers like the ones he’s getting, though it's unclear what those offers actually look like.

they are talking around 11 mill per year for Pavano, yet they cant afford Vasquez? What types of offers is he getting?

Trade Gabby Sanchez and Ricky Nolasco for Justin Upton. and Sign Vazquez to replace nolasco. HE DOES GREAT IN THE NL EAST!

Why did you post this as two different names…? And why do you think Sanchez and Nolasco would get anything but laughter from Kevin Towers?

Add four players to that deal and maybe then you’ll get Upton. Yesterday’s “speculation” from a GM that Morrison and Nolasco would get it done is absolutely laughable.

I don’t see a problem with Nolasco and Gaby but that will not even come close to getting him. I’m guessing Nolasco, Gaby, Kyle Skipworth and Chad James and maybe one more prospect. Dbacks get a good Starter and solid all around 1B and two of the Marlins top prospects.

I think you have to take out Sanchez and add in Morrison, even in that package, unless Arizona specifically likes Gaby better for some reason.

not laughable at all, the dbacks gm said he wants to win the deal…in other words he wants to be able to say “well if i turn this deal down ill get fired” considering he does not have to trade him it makes sense to get as much as possible..

You’re actually “liking” your own posts with your other account?

…Honestly?

It also creates the illusion that there are more than one Marlins fan out there.

You’re old enough to have a son who’s old enough to post on here… and you still type like a 13-year-old, make insults like a 9-year-old, and don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re”?

I feel bad for you son.

Yeah, Nolasco and Sanchez isn’t landing the Marlins Justin Upton. BJ Upton, but not the younger brother.

Guest
