Swisher wants $15m per year for like 5 years, lets say.
Itchy is signing for $6m for 1-2 years.
Itchy is a better clutch player and better defender and better base runner by miles. Itchy also generates huge revenue if that matters to fans. I think it does as it creates possible future spending.
Swisher hits hr and takes pitches. Yippee.
It's quite simple who the smart play was.
