In response to GreenPartyCelt's comment:
Have the Yankees already given up on Swisher? Seems like it would make more sense to simply bring him back than to roll the dice with Hamilton...
Swisher is the guy in the bar that got everyone to sing the same song in unison. But now he keeps tapping you on the shoulder to join, and you dread even seeing him.
Anyway, if I were rooting for a NYY anti-move, it would be for them to go to war for Hamilton's services, and the winner/loser matching Greinke's $147M/6. Just like ARod and Tex, it'll look good for a little while, but after 2-3 years, downhill.
The Yankee pundits suggest they have given up on Swisher, notin..We will see...As to the "downhill" aspect of signing Josh H., breidey, like I said above, there is no fiscal cliff when you have marmaduke's deep pockets...
Sure, if that's true. But they failed to re-sign Martin and Chavez. They might have plans that we don't know about, but at least right now, they hit something, a cliff, a wall, a rock, but they aren't just signing checks.
