RIP, Javy Vazquez’s career in pinstripes. After another crappy (is that too kind?) outing, this will hopefully likely be the last we see of Javy in a Yankee uniform. We’ve seen the stats by now and they are flat out horrible. Old school, new school, elementary school, vocational school. I can’t see any reason why Girardi would place him on the playoff roster. None.
No matter what you want to look at, Javy Vazquez has been drinking copiously from the Fountain of Suck.
So first, his Yankees numbers (which don’t include tonite’s %&^*burger sandwich). Suffice it to say, 2004 and 2010 are among his worst two years as a professional. Also the only two years since age 24 where he didn’t reach 200 IP. Looking at just these two years lacks the perspective. I encourage you to check out his entire career to better appreciate how bad he’s been here, relative to elsewhere (read: the NL).

Let’s enjoy the simplicity of the graphs coming out of fangraphs.com, taking note of how often the 2010 line jumps from “good” to “poor”:
