Weekly Check In: Nick Swisher


Over the weekend we wrote about the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees rivalry needing a spark but before any rivalry or division can be sparked the Yankees offense needs to be sparked first. The Yankees offense is stagnant, the pitching is mediocre and the bullpen is going through some ups and downs currently, namely Dellin Betances. The New York Yankees need a shot in the arm, they need a change of pace. What they need is a hero. Could that possibly be Nick Swisher?

I’m not donning Swisher as the savior of the 2016 season by any means but you’re almost at the point in the season where you have to start throwing crap at the wall and see what sticks. It’s getting late awfully early and the Yankees cannot try the same thing over and over again and expect a different result, that’s the exact definition of lunacy.

The Yankees have three potential 60-day DL candidates so the 40 man roster spot wouldn’t be an issue and with Swisher’s versatility at first base and in the outfield the bench would survive in my opinion. Swisher’s Triple-A stats support it and if anything New York should be riding this hot streak in the Bronx rather than down in Scranton. But hey, what do I know. I’m just a frustrated and passionate Yankees fan who rants and raves on the internet.
