Is Javier Vazquez mulling a comeback?

Nov 6, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

Javier Vazquez had a great 2011, throwing 193 innings with a 3.69 ERA for the Marlins. If he wanted to, he could have made a bunch of money pitching for in 2012. But he didn’t. He dropped the mic and has spent the last year enjoying life with his family in Puerto Rico. But Peter Gammons says:

 

It’s all about desire, you figure, because given how he ended up, and given that Andy Pettitte took a year off and came back in pretty darn good form, you know any number of teams would take a chance on Vazquez if he were willing to pitch.

    So Vazquez could soon become an unretired ex-Expo. Awesome.

    He did well for the Braves, bombed for the Yanks, and redeemed himself with the Marlins. Wouldn’t mind seeing him come back to pitch again, assuming he has a decent run in the WBC.

      You have to figure that anyone who redeemed himself with the Feesh could re-redeem himself pretty much anywhere.

    As a Red Sox fan I consider Vazquez an all-time good person for serving up Johnny Damon’s Game 7 grand slam in 2004.

    Getting paid as much as he did to be fairly awful would afford someone the luxury of walking away to enjoy time with the family.

    Awww crap! Cashman just got a hard on

      Believe me Cashman doesn’t ever want to hear the names of Vazquez, and Burnett ever again, and who could blame him.
