Yeah, actress I think. Joanna Garcia.

Aw, well, actress huh? Too bad for him. Probably won't last that long. Not that I care about Swisher that much. Unless, of course we get him. Then, too bad.

She's easy on the eyes though.

She's very preggers right now. They're probably pretty stable.

Sure for now. What's the shelf life of a married actress? Like three years? Maybe she's not a very good actress then it could work.

I'm sounding a wee bit cynical tonight.

Add a ditto for me.

Ditto X5. Here that Swisher, stay wth NY so we can beat your a**! We don't want you and your New Yorker ways! Hamilton, personally i'll take your southern hospitality and your demons. Can you say Frank Robinson 2.0?!

Everytime I read the comments on here about ex yanks or bosox I am reminded to quit worrying about posting something stupid.

I don't want Swisher because I think the years/money will not be worth it. The fact that he was a yankee has nothing to do with it. The man is a player and an asset at the right price.

This is gonna be the guy taking Reynolds spot I would guess. He can play 1b and LF. It doesn't get much better than that for us. He can potentially take up either hole in the field right now.

He's a lousy defender wherever they put him. I miss Mark Reynolds already. God, did i just say that?

The new collective bargaining agreement is creating a tough issue for guys like Swisher and Soriano. A rich team like the Yankees can make qualifying offers that hurt their standings in the market so that these players get less play in the free agent market. I know you used to always lose draft picks for these types of guys, but now that it is rare it will affect the value of these guys more.

The Yankees might start getting some of these guys to go year to year because other teams don't want to give up the first round pick plus the money.

IF we sign Swisher and he is an absolute Yankee killer in 2013 I would be ok with it. But he is also gonna need to top 6 home runs in 4 games vs the yanks, or 7 in 6 ;)

emotions aside, I still don't think Swisher is worth the money

    • Has anyone been to a Nats game recently? I am planning on going to the O's game Saturday and curious if they are still enforcing the masks.  Supposed to be a high of 90 on Saturday...
    • I'm just going to lock this thread as it's lowering the IQ of the whole board.
    • Ok, I thought you were just joking but at this point, I'm going to assume you don't have a firm grasp on what an actual major league prospect looks like and how organizations work. 
    • There will be rare exceptions (what they mean to the city, organization, generational type guy) but for the most part, I think getting rid of basically any player before they hit 30 is the way to go.     Sometimes, that means trading them at 27, sometimes it means 29.  Situations and who the player is dictate all of those things but my basic rule of thumb would be to get rid of them by the time they hit 30.
    • I'm under the assumption that this is just a giant joke. Ripken is not even a good AA player. He would have never had been signed if not for his name and would have been released five times already.  He's not even a priority play at Norfolk. He's just an extra guy to give a guy a day off or cover down for an injury. His slash line over his minor league career is .242/.281/.332/.613 in 1480 PAs. He's been given more than 295 PAs in a season twice. Once in Washington where he slashed .201/.241/.254/.495 in 399 PAs as a 22-year old between NYPenn and Sally League (A-) and then with Delmarva (A-) at as a 24-year old slashing .244/.281/.327/.608 in 420 PAs. Unless you just want to see a side show where a 3rd Ripken plays in the major league with the Orioles, there is not right to even be having a conversation about him being promoted to the Orioles. It would be a travesty to every hard working long time minor leaguer who actually have had a good minor league career if that were to happen.  
    • There is likely a statistical answer to this and that answer is likely to have something to do with the profile of the player (e.g., velocity, age, LD% or whatever) and the parameters of what you consider successful. Alex Wells is a great example. Very successful at AA but not the profile of ML success. Not impossible, but not the profile without velocity. It happens with hitters too. I forget his name, but we had a guy who won the triple crown (I think) in Bowie about 10 years ago. He was old, which is part of his profile, and likely had other profile things because he wasn't really a prospect even at that time.  Short answer is that success isn't a bad thing, but it's not a guarantee. Alternatively, it's probably hard to play at any level without success and then go to the majors and have success unless you're talking about very small sample sizes.
