Yankees closing in on Vazquez

The Yankees were getting close to re-acquiring right-hander Javier Vazquez on Tuesday morning, reportedly agreeing to a trade with the Braves that would also net them left-hander Boone Logan.

New York would send outfielder Melky Cabrera, lefty Mike Dunn and a Minor Leaguer to the Braves in exchange, according to the New York Daily News. The Yankees’ interest in Vazquez was first reported by the New York Post.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman has been looking for another arm to add to the rotation, and Vazquez fits the bill in terms of being affordable as the club looks to come in under $200 million in payroll for 2010. Vazquez is owed $11.5 million for 2010 in the final year of his contract.

Hmmmmm. If things happen in threes, and we bring back Nick Johnson and Javier Vazquez, could Marcus Thames be on the horizon?

“Vizcaino, 19, had a 2.13 ERA in 10 starts for Class A Staten Island this year and was recently named the Yankees’ third-best prospect by Baseball America. ”

So we send him off to another team and let them develop him and then we bring him back at a later date.

You’ve GOT to be f-ing kidding me……… Javier Vasquez? You mean because it worked out so well the FIRST time he was here? Oh that’s right, after winning 14 games for us, we traded him away to get Big Useless….. Trading away the future for some more “right now”….. Isn’t that what got us into the mess we were in??? So that leaves Gardner in LF?
