After four productive and often thrill-packed seasons with the Yankees, each followed by an underwhelming post-season performance, Nick Swisher is now an Indian. He inked a four-year $56-million contract with Cleveland over the weekend.
Swisher (scoring here in a September game against Oakland) joins the exodus of familiar Yankee names that also includes catcher Russell Martin (#55). Do you think the Yanks made a sound decision in letting "Swishalicious" leave? Keep in mind that from 2009-2012, he averaged .267 with 26 home runs.
