We should trade for Nick Swisher

Swisher's a funny guy. Best part of the whole thing was when he shook off the catcher (who wasn't even GIVING signs). Molina cocks his head to the side like Jason deciding which unruly teenager to kill first.

Its actually somewhat funny to watch him. He has his big thing of chew in there, and throws somewhere around 80. They state that he was throwing off speed stuff, but I think that was his fastball.

The next clip that comes up is an MLB.com guy talking about it with the highlights, and he remarks something along the lines of "he was using mostly offspeed stuff *sotto voce* not that he had much choice."

Yea, I saw that too. That's where I got the notion that he was using his offspeed stuff. But he doesn't have a great outfield arm, and I think 80 was about where he would top out with his fastball. Not bad though, but he did leave a couple balls up in the zone.

Swisher was awesome on the A's and the White Sox, he used to do a lot of crazy and funny things and It's nice to see that it's carried over to the Yanks. He posted on Twitter last night that "My arm hurts ahahahahah" and I thought he was injured, but welp......that explains it.

Anybody remember Manny Alexander coming in to pitch back in maybe 1996? when we were getting creamed by the rangers(the 1st real bad time). I think they scored 27 on us that time....

Yes, for years the joke was, "wheres Manny?" when our pitchers were stinking it up.
