The Yankees have traded fan favorite Melky Cabrera (along with Mike Dunn, the best lefty reliever we've never seen or heard of, and another minor leaguer) to Atlanta for 2004 ALCS hero Javier Vazquez (hero for Boston anyway) and lefty reliever Boone Logan.
This marks the end of the Melk-man era. If Cano hits under .250 next season, it will be Cash's fault for trading away his best friend.
Vazquez is an innings eater. Innings, while nutritionally deficient, are important to baseball teams. Vazquez will slot in as the fourth starter, moving one of either Joba or Hughes into the bullpen. Of course, if Vazquez struggles in the 4 spot, expect the Vazquez starter/reliever debate to heat up again.
