Javier Vazquez is considering a comeback

We first heard whispers of this in early November, but ESPN Deportes is reporting that, yes, Javier Vazquez is considering a comeback. The report — roughly translated, since we have misplaced our babelfish — says that Vazquez is interested in pitching for a contender this season, but doesn’t plan on making any decisions until after the World Baseball Classic.

Given the kind of scratch pitchers are making these days, and given that Vazuqez left the game following the 2011 season in fine form (13-11, 3.69 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 162/50 K/BB ratio in 192.2 innings), you have to figure that he would draw considerable interest should he decide to give it a whirl.

    Babelfish? Sounds like a description of how Scrooge McLoria and the Chihuahua keep fooling people. Or would that be, Babelfeesh. Having one would have helped us understand Ozzie Guillen as well…

    At any rate, nice Hitchhiker reference.

    Best of luck to Javier Vazquez. Assuming he’s healthy, there’s no reason to believe he can’t at least fill out the back of a rotation somewhere.

        No! No! Lock up Cashman. Keep him away from Javier’s agent!
