    Swisher on his decision to fist bump that fan; "Well, hell, he's going to jail. So why not?"

    Thinking the exact same thing - they didn't even have to identify him.

    Swisher leading the team in RBIs. Could be an interesting off season if this keeps up. I love the guy...not sure if he's the best option but it will certainly be an interesting negotiation.

    OPS up to .800

    Hope he starts walking some more, it's crazy seeing Swish with an OBP in the .320's. Atleast he's still getting his XBH.

    Coming to a theatre near you. The sequel......"White Men Can Jump", starring Nick Swisher.

    Great catch by Swish. For me, it was even better to see him work that bases loaded walk after being down in the count 0-2. Hopefully, he puts up a .900+ OPS for the rest of the season.

    With the contract Ethier was given, I'd say it's doubtful Swish will be back on the team next year if they're really serious about the $189 million budget.

    Which I'd be okay with. We have guys that can play the field. If Ibanez can still hit, I wouldn't mind resigning him and Jones to platoon RF. Or have Dickerson play RF.

    On a relative sense, with the general population, absolutely. But I don't think the guy is ever going to be the starting RF for the Yankees.

    His career numbers aren't good, and they're being skewed by a 120-game sample from 3-4 years ago.

    He's a 30-year-old AAAA player who shouldn't be anything more than a fourth outfielder on the Yankees.

    I'm looking within the organization. If we don't get to keep Swish, then just bring Dickerson up. That's also assuming 189m.

    I know. That doesn't make Dickerson any good.

    those two ABs with the bases juiced last night were just amazingly terrible.

    Swisher Q&A with ESPN Playbook:
    http://espn.go.com/blog/playbook/fan...-with-playbook
    Nothing earth shattering, just typical Swish.
    I thought this was pretty funny:
    You pitched a scoreless inning in your only major league pitching appearance. Have you considered lobbying Joe Girardi for more opportunities?

    There was an opportunity we had this year, and [Dewayne] Wise got that call. We were laughing about it after the game, seeing if there are any other teams in the big leagues that have two outfielders with a combined 0.00 ERA.

    DH'ing again today. I hope the injury is not more serious than previously thought.

    Why push him? Especially with Tex D2D too.

    a long way from yankee stadium.

    Re: The Official 2012 Nick Swisher Performance Thread

    He's hitting it hard so there shouldn't any worry. Plus he's got he OBP up to .349 Which is still low for him but far better than he earlier season rate.

    Gonna miss him when he leaves, but at 31, he really shouldn't be someone who we give big deal to - especially given the $189m target.

    No bump after the last two games? I know chances are slim that he is a Yankee after this year, but man, I love this guy. I hope he has a monster post season and makes it a really difficult decision.

    I agree... The last two games this guy has been hung like Donkey Kong!
    I'm really hoping the Yankees come at him with some kind of 3 years 28 million and he takes it (because he loves it in the Bornx)
