    So long Swish...

    via RAB

    If you were holding out hope the Yankees would swoop in and unexpectedly re-sign Nick Swisher, you can forget about it now. Mark Feinsand reports the switch-hitter has agreed to a four-year, $56M deal with the Indians that includes a $14M vesting option for a fifth year.

    Cleveland has a protected first round pick (#5 overall), but that doesnít matter as far as the Yankees are concerned. They were going to receive the same supplemental first round pick no matter where he signed. The Tribe forfeits their second rounder instead. Swisher was easily one of Brian Cashmanís best pickups, a tremendously durable and productive outfielder who cost Wilson Betemit and two prospects whose names you donít remember.
    I wish him all the best.

    I'll miss him. Rough end, but let's not forget about the good he did for us.
    4/56 sounds like wayyyy too much for him at this point.

    It's actually 5/70.

    For a 32 yr old average player.

    I'd rather have kept Choo.

    Yeah I don't like that trade off if I'm an Indians fan.

    I checked the Indians forum. They have two replies and no new thread regarding swisher.

    Leo.....with your new found subconscious insight into the breadth and depth of the ancient tomes, what might be thine wise opinion concerning the murky and uncertain future of our other resident choker, Bob.....


    And so, a new era begins.....

    My fandom prefers to have him, rather than not, but my gut tells me that the Yanks will not engage in currency warfare, thereby causing the aforementioned Bob to seek shelter elsewhere in 2014.

    Why do the Yanks only get their second rounder? How does that work? And do they get a first as well?
