Here a guy who just in 2003 went
for the horrible Montreal Expos.
Then he gets traded to the Yankees, and EVERYONE goes crazy bonkers over him like he the hottest thing that ever lived. People were hyping him for the 2004 Cy Young in New York.
And I responded by saying.........slow down! Yes he is very talented and yes he has cy young stuff, but he is going to need time to adjust to both the
American League (where there are DH's and overall quality of the hitters is much higher)
New York (the new york spotlight curse)
Vazquez seemed to be doing just fine actaully prooving me wrong by going
in the month of April
then he fell apart and had a bad month in may but then in June he put together another great month of
All this adding up to Vazuqez MAKING THE AL All Star Team and finishing his 1st half of his 1st year career in the AL with
Then the guy just fell apart after the All Star break similar to MArk Mulder for the A's. Vazquez however apparently had injuries that the Yankees had him pitch through.
They get mad and trade him back to the National League (where he pitches obvioulsy better just like anyone would)
My point is this how can you not be high on Vazuqez this season?
because he is on the lolely dbacks?
didn't stop anyone when he was on the lolely expos
Javier Vazquez is a mega sleeper/steal b/c it seems like every1 is avoiding him like the plague.
what a mistake, I fully expect him to put up similar numbers to what he did from 2001-2003 with the expos
basically thats a borderline #1 fantasy starter and a TOP #2
this is why he is on most of my teams this year (and he was on none of my teams last year)
By the way he retired the first 16 Mariners he faced today in Spring Training.
He is back in the National League which he spent the previous 3 seasons dominating team after team.
He is back on a quiet and spotlight less team and city wit the Arizona Diamondbacks
my point being there is no way Javier Vazquez shouldn't be in your top 20 starters. And for ppl like me well i got him in my top 15.
you can nab him pretty late in the draft too, I think i got him in the 9th or 10 round of the cafe challenge.
what a steal
