Vazquez Returns to the Big Apple

Javy heads back to New YorkEven though they were just nailed with $25.69 million in luxury taxes, the New York Yankees aren't quite done spending.

Braves righty Javier Vazquez was given back to New York Tuesday in a trade that sent centerfielder Melky Cabrera to Atlanta. The Yankees will also get tall drink of water Boone Logan while the Braves will obtain lefty pitching prospect Mike Dunn, right-handed Dominican Arodys Vizcaino, and half a million dollars.

Cabrera set career highs with 13 homers and 68 RBIs last season for the Yanks while batting .274.

Vazquez was with New York in 2004, going 14-10 in his only All-Star season. He might be best remembered for his ALCS Game 7 meltdown when he surrendered a first-pitch grand slam to Johnny Damon (along with another bomb) in relief of Kevin Brown.

Ah, memories.
