MFAWG: Scary tag on vacation? That shiat was no joke.

That is pretty scary. Also amazing what modern medicine can do these days -- if this happened 30 or 40 years ago odds are pretty good that he'd be told to walk it off and then die in a few days.

Anthony Vasquez doesn't play for the Seattle Mariners and probably never will again; he has been something of a running joke on Lookout Landing after he had a brief call-up in 2011 and was clearly overmatched at the Major League level. He's not a Major League caliber pitcher but, hey, very few people are, and he got to live the dream for a short time. If he makes it back, his role will be to chew up innings in the minors so the real prospects don't hurt their arms.

In any event, wishing him all the best for a full recovery.

Baseball obviously takes a back seat for now, but there's a chance he pitch by the spring if all goes well.

Vasquez, 26, had an 8.90 ERA in seven starts with the Mariners in 2011

Is that like the old 'doctor will I be able to play the piano' joke
