That didn’t take long: Vazquez linked to Nationals

ph_134320One day, that’s all it took for the hot stove to connect Javier Vazquez to a second-tier National League team.

Citing a source close to Vazquez, says the forgotten Yankees starter would be open to pitching for the Washington Nationals next year, giving him a chance to stay on the East Coast and move back to the National League.

Just guessing, but I’d say there’s a zero percent chance Vazquez will be back with the Yankees next — I don’t think either side would be interested — so I’m not sure any Vazquez rumors have any real impact on the Yankees offseason, but this is the kind of thing that sparks the hot stove season.

Nothing’s going to happen for a while, though. For now, the NLCS is the biggest thing going in baseball, but I’m one of those people without Fox right now. That leaves me with a perfect excuse for ignoring baseball for a night and watching my Mizzou Tigers try to knock off Oklahoma.
