Nick Swisher traded to the Yanks


Ken Rosenthal reports the Yankees traded for Nick Swisher and pitcher Kanekoa Texeira. Jeff Marquez is reportedly involved in the deal, other players such as Wilson Betemit are said to possibly be included.

Not a bad deal for the Yankees here, put Nick at 1B so you don't have to spend the big bucks on getting Mark Texiera, and i looked up Kanekoa Texeira's minor league stats, in 61 IP he had a 1.33 ERA for Chicago.

Here's a video with Toby Hall and Nick Swisher, the guy is pretty funny.

The problem is he swings away like the white Robinson Cano...

haha i never thought of it like that, you're right. Still we did get him for almost nothing, and the Texeira guy we got looks pretty good (according to his stats)

"Swish" may be funny in videos, but I want Teixeira. The one with the second "i" in his name.

I would totally love seeing the other Tex in a Yankee uniform, but at this point, i'd really just like CC to accept that enourmous offer already!

Hope everything is alright with you Jane btw, i heard about the fires in California :(

Thanks, Alex. My bags are still packed, but I haven't had to get out yet. Just hope the winds don't pick up tonight. Very scary stuff out here.
