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.
