I just want to say that this crap about Vazquez being a great framer is bullshit. He moves his glove so much that it makes borderline strikes look worse.

Phew. Really hard inning but I saw some really nice heaters in there. Still got high hopes for him in the pen.

Fangraphs has Vazquez 4th among 32 catchers with 400+ AB in framing runs added. It doesn't always look pretty (and attempts to frame can lead to more passed balls), but he's still better than most.
