His value is SKY-high right now...
To expect to get Johan or Doc in exchange for Swisher is the definition of a strech. Obviously, an unrealistic Buy-Low Sell-High situation in most cases. I would say he would be worth a middle tier closer right now. But, he is impressing me more every day. He should be a solid producer all year especially with his spot in the A's lineup. However, he is an outfielder so don't go for broke trying to aquire this guy when he probably has already hit 1/3 of his hr's for the year in the first month.
