Weekly Check In: Nick Swisher


Truth be told this may be the last time we check in with Nick Swisher because what's the point? The sole reason the New York Yankees signed Nick Swisher to a minor league deal this winter was to have a fresh body down in Triple-A just in case of an injury to Mark Teixeira. Well guess what, Teixeira has missed games due to neck pains and spasms twice now already this season and yet Swisher is still toiling around in Scranton with the RailRiders.

So if you sign a guy for insurance in case of an injury and you get said injury, twice mind you, and you don't call him up.... what's the point? And I'm not saying his production has warranted the call up, especially lately, but still. Even Dustin Ackley is hurt. Oh well maybe one last time let's check in with the man they call "Swish."
