In Case You Were Wondering

Using the same methods I used in the Free Agent pitchers review, with the caveat that I didn't adjust for home run park factors because I'm missing the 02-03 data for the Expos:

Javier Vazquez
2004: 4.36, 198 IP
Weighted 3-Year: 3.601 217 IP

Special Non-Stottlemyre Bonus Round:
2003: 2.99, 230.2 IP
Weighted 3-year ('01-'03): 3.06, 228.2 IP

Keep in mind, this is based on his batted ball types in 2004, not for his career, and is based on the Dodgers' outstanding 2004 defensive efficiency ratio.

Vazquez has, in his career, registered a lot of strikeouts. His strikeouts dipped to near average in both 2002 and 2004 and peaked in 2003. He maintains a low walk rate, but that worsened a somewhat in '04 as well. Despite the offense-favorable environment he played in with Montreal, he kept his home run rate below average until coming to the Yankees, at which point he gave up a ton of them.
