Fixing Javier

Don Cooper apparently spent the last couple days fixing Javier Vazquez's delivery. Everyone knows about Vazquez's tendency to explode like Bluto ("I'm a zit. Get it?") in the sixth inning. Cooper, who is baseball current mound magic man (that sounds dirty), believes he can fix it by getting Vazquez to keep his arm angle up on his slider late in the game. Sounds good to me, but I've never thrown a slider. And, what do you say Ozzie doesn't use McCarthy on Friday so he's available to pitch the sixth and seventh on Saturday. You know, just in case.
