    New York Yankees pitcher Javier Vazquez may be only 33 years old, but he is apparently already thinking about retirement.

    Vazquez, who is in the last year of his contract, reportedly told Puerto Rican newspaper La Perla del Sur, “I don’t have much playing time left…I go year by year, and I don’t know if it will be one, two or three years, but I’m definitely not going to play until 40.”

    Vazquez apparently has a rich and varied life off the field, hanging out with his wife and two kids, collecting fine art (especially that of Puerto Rican artists), and educating himself about wine.

    If 2010 does turn out to be his last season, let’s hope that Vazquez posts up 20 wins like Mike Mussina did in his last year…

      I just got over him giving up that homer to Damon 23 minutes ago so I guess I will comment positively. I don’t care when he retires! I just need him to pitch well and not give up huge taters that will take me almost another 6 years to get over. Vasquez, worry about today and let retirement come when it comes!

      It would be AWESOME if Vazquez went out like Mussina this year, with 20 wins and a top-6 finish in the Cy Young vote.

      I truly wish it for him if this really will be his last year. Somehow…I doubt it. 99.9% of these guys talk about retirement for 5-10 years before they actually do it.

      I really dig that he has such a “rich and varied life off the field.” More power to him, I wish him and his family the best.
