No? You say no just that easy? Swisher is not a sexy name, he's not superstar but he's one of most consistent guys around here. Yeah, he was kind of useless against Baltimore in playoffs but you have to make playoffs first. Swisher helps to your team to accomplished that. You know he's going to give you terrific production every season. I just wonder how capable he's at first base?

This all day. I'd take him in a heartbeat. If he was wearing an Orioles uniform I'd love that smirk.

On top of everything else I liked his interview too. I liked his comments about being excited to be a Dad for the first time.

I'm already in a mood because I wanted Reynolds back. Hearing they have interest in Swisher makes me want to barf.

The thought of Swisher in the Oriole clubhouse makes my skin crawl. I don't know how I'd feel if it actually happened and he was productive and helped the O's win some games but on the surface it makes me cringe.

Yeah obviously I just want them to win but man, I just don't think I could stomach this.

    • Back when we signed Odor, my eyes rolled, probably a medically unsafe distance back into my skull. It took awhile, but he grew on me. Gritty, red-assing, bluster and pimping beyond his skill set, but he grudgingly grew on me. When he was flailing at the plate, and we started to show signs of life, I gnashed teeth, clutched pearls, and silently questioned Hyde's manhood. Recently, I realized Odor is not going to be here beyond this year, and decided to simply appreciate his contributions towards, lets face it, what was looking to be another very shit*y, tank-worthy team. I believe I'll eventually look upon him fondly, in what has been an amazing season, no matter how it turns out. So, a hat tip to you, Mr. Rougned Odor, for your contribution, and also, for snapping Joey Bats head back like a human pez dispenser. That was awesome.  
    • I've been very pleasantly surprised by Mountcastle's speed, and more recently, AR, even Vavra, and blown away by Gunnar..... So, yes, I am also surprised and a bit perplexed by Stowers foot speed (or perceived lack there of). Weirdly, it looks like Stowers is tentative, or something mental more than physical ability to move quickly. But just my impression, nothing to back it up.
    • He is also slower than he looks like he should be which is kind of the opposite of what I normally feel about guys that come up.  Mountcastle, Adley, and Gunnar all struck me as faster than I expected, e.g.
    • Agreed, just from a purely logistics perspective it wouldn't surprise me if both he and Gillaspie are optioned after tonight's game, and someone like Sulser and Vespi are brought up. 
    • He also really looked bad missing that tag at second tonight.   Sometimes it seems his head is not in the game. 
    • I don't see that changing either.  I think he is what he is at the plate.  He could still bring a lot of value in a reserve role. 
    • He can only come back up to replace an injured player. But he would qualify for post season play...
