Finally, Swisher is hitting like the "real" Nick Swisher. There's absolutely no reason he still can't get to 30 HR this year (he would need 22 in about 100 team games; not that many considering he hit 35 with Oakland in 2006, and the White Sox ballpark is so good. if you look at his peripherals and LD/GB/FB ratios, they are actually baetter this year than they had been in past years, so I would venture to say that a lot of this slow start is just "luck", anyways...)

I've always liked Swisher - mostly because he's the only good baseball player to ever come from Ohio State - and I was expecting 35-40 HR this year, even with the slow start I wouldn't be surprised if he goes on a nice run and finishes with 30+

BETTER HURRY!


Exactly!

Why are you even worried about it? Drop him, no one is going to pick him up off waivers. I dropped him weeks ago and there he sits, a free agent. He's FA fodder for the forseeaable future, if you have him rostered, you're wasting a spot.[/quote]

THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE IS UPON US.
Guess I've been wasting a roster spot. He's been riding my bench for about a month or longer, but didn't give up on him. Started him happily the last 2 games.

Hah. Just before his recent power surge, I traded Alex Gordon and Ryan Franklin for Nick Swisher and Brett Myers - they both look like they might be turning it around. This could be a huge steal for me.

In spite of trading Nick in one league back at the end of May, I *really* expected him to turn it around eventually, and my gut kept telling me I'd made a mistake by dealing him. He really hasn't, and I'm so thankful that I got rid of the loud sucking sound his .209 average was making on my team. (He's upped his average to a whopping .235 since. :-° )

But what a disappointment. He's still a young guy (27, almost 28), but I'm not sure I'll ever pay much attention to him except in leagues with OPS, and even this year his OPS is stinky (.768)
