    looks like he just stuck his driver's license on his Yankee cap.

    he smiles too much. He needs to get serious about serious business. Showoff.

    I kid. I'm glad he's one of the few guys that continues to enjoy the eff out of the game and how lucky he is to be talented, rich, and do what he loves.

    I always admired Swish for the way he seems to enjoy the hell out of his job. It's not fake with him. I've said in the past that if they'd let him sell hot dogs in the stands between innings, he'd do that too.

    Going to miss his regular season play. Playoffs- Not so much.
    He was definetly one of the reasons Yanks made it to playoffs the last few years and has been fun to see him wear his passion of the game on his sleeve.

    I love how he plays the game; it meshes well with more serious ballplayers (Jeter) as well.

    Makes me wonder who will be the resident class clown now that Nick is gone. I think you need at least one guy like that on the team to keep everybody from getting too serious day in and day out.

    They're a baseball team, not a comedy routine. Hopefully nobody will fill Swish's shoes as village idiot.

    It's also a locker room and they can't be all business all the time. I'm sure Nick wasn't all the fun though.

    I have to feel that Nick must come to a new team and everyone loves him. His energy, his excitement, his positive attitude (times 1000). He is the ultimate teammate.

    Then, as the days go by, he becomes harder and harder to take. By the middle of the season, they probably all wish he'd go away.

    Just my speculation.
    Whatever you think...
    Well, you're wrong.

    I remember reading that he's one of the most disliked guys in the game among the players. Clearly fans like him though.

    Sure the fans love him. He always waves to them and talks to them. But I sometimes wonder if his act is not as liked by his teamates.

    I would guess, like anyone with the type of personality he has, there are times when it's wanted and appreciated and there are times when it is grating and annoying. There were definitely some guys on the team he appeared to be closer to than others but when isn't that the case with teammates? They aren't paid to be friends or have the same approach to the game. I wouldn't doubt if some of the more serious guys wish he would tone it down at times.

    Yes, there're a baseball team and baseball teams have fun and let off steam once in awhile. 162 games tends to wear you down and anybody who can lighten the mood is as valuable as any guy who steals bases.

    Swish left camp to go to his mother's funeral, per MLBastian on twitter.
