Vazquez to Florida?

Postby stumpak » Fri Jul 15, 2005 9:00 am

I don't think anyone posted this yet. Obvious benefits to his value moving from a hitter's park to a pitcher's park and from a team with a crappy closer to a team with a capable one.

From rotowire:

Jul 14 Diamondbacks managing partner Ken Kendrick dismissed trade rumors linking Vazquez to the Marlins, the East Valley Tribune reports.
Recommendation: Kendrick said that the Diamondbacks have had "no communication" with the Marlins, adding "we're not interested in moving (Vazquez)." However, be aware that, due to the circumstances surrounding last winter's trade involving Vazquez and Randy Johnson, Vazquez has the right to demand a trade this winter. Therefore, if the D-Backs slink farther out of the NL West race in the next two weeks, the D-Backs could well decide to get something in trade for Vazquez now.

How does anyone "have the right to demand a trade"? Weird.

I wouldn't think his value would change significantly.

It was a condition of the trade. The long and short of it is that his family is in Puerto Rico and he did not want to go west, so DBacks had to insert this clause to get him to accept coming to Arizona.

Actually, it is my understanding that any player traded while in the middle of a multi-year contract has the right to demand a trade and, if not obliged, can become a free agent. Must be done so at the completion of the year in which he was traded.

As such, I think everyone in Vazquez' position, not just Vazquez, could demand a trade this off-season.

I don't care where he goes if he continues to pitch like he did yesterday :-B

I just dont understand things like this. Here is a guy, making BAJILLIONS of dollars, and he doesnt want to be away from his family? HELLO, am I missing something? MLB doesnt have a team in Puerto Rico, so isnt he ALWAYS away from them? Hell, fly them here and buy them a house in Arizona, or wherever else. Damn, what a spoiled brat. They are paying you millions of dollars, just play where ever.

Not everyone values money above all else. Family, and extended family, is very important to a lot of people, especially among the various Latino cultures.

As a Vasquez owner I would love to see him move from Arizona to florida. His home/away spilts are redicuous this year. I don't start him at home ever, period. If he went ot Florida he would be an every game starter for me.

Which is why I said bring them to where he is. He isnt playing in front of them now, nor was he playing in front of them in Montreal or New York, which is why I dont understand why he seemed to have this problem about going out West.
