Vazquez asks the Dbacks to trade him

Recommended Posts

Ok so this means Josh Byrnes is really gonna be after some more starting pitching now.

 

At the moment they have Webb, Ortiz, Halsey and Vargas. Not exactly front - line material. At least they'll be able to save some salary though.

We ought to trade Jon Garland, Joe Crede, and Aaron Rowand. Then turn around and use him to get Randy Johnson... We'll win the world series for sure... Hell throw in Jose Contreas just for the hell of it...

I don't believe Rowand as ever part of the RJ package. :P

Do you think Vazquez is kicking himself for spurning the White Sox now?

 

He may be doing so, but the Sox certainly don't regret it.

I thought the original request was Garland and Rowand in the summer of 2004.

I think you'll see the O's make the major push for him.

 

Just spitballing here, but, I think this is a very logical rotation for 06':

 

Burnett (They'll pay him and his wife's family is from the area, expressed some desire to play there during the trade-deadline)

Vazquez (Why not? It makes perfect sense. They need an upper-tier starting pitcher and Vazquez certainly has the stuff)

Lopez

Chen

Cabrera

 

 

All of a sudden, the O's have a respectable rotation. Will it be enough to compete for the divison? I'm not sure; but, those two additions would certainly help.

I don't see Burnett coming to the O's. The Orioles are notoriously gunshy about giving pitchers long deals, and Ponson couldn't have improved that attitude any. That's why I see Vazquez being a good fit -- only 2 more years on the deal, a reasonable salary (about $12 mil per), and a history of success. The Orioles also seem to have some players that could make a deal attractive -- a deal centered around Hayden Penn makes sense to me. You have a respectable first 4, then you hope Mazzone can work his magic with the next Jaret Wright, and you're ready to play. Then the O's can focus on signing a bat, which is the only signing they really seem to enjoy, anyway.

Yeah, forgot about him.  Can't knock the Hustler.

 

Haha, I am actually thinking of changing my name. It's stupid but funny because theres relation between the grind of a hustler and the white sox grinders.
