MLB - Scoop Du Jour

New York Yankees pitcher Javier Vazquez(notes) 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.

One guesses that he's probably tired of moving around, too. The return of Vazquez to the Yankees marks the fifth team change he's had in a career that started in 1998 with the Montreal Expos and included stops with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago White Sox, and Atlanta Braves.
