I agree with this post.
When Nady comes back best case scenario he platoons with Nick Swisher.
I don't understand why some people on this forum think Nick Swisher stinks.
He has a solid On Base Percentage (.390) and he hits for power (12 home runs).
You figure Damon will play almost every day in Left, Melky & Brett Gardner will play in center field, Swisher plays in left, and Matsui DH's (with Posada occasionally getting some DH at bats).
I think Nady is worth stashing in deeper leagues (12 teams or more). I just don't think he's worth the roster spot in leagues smaller than that.
Just my opinion but in leagues smaller than that I want my hitters playing almost every day.

On the other hand, Swish has shown a lot of power, and he's quickly become a strong fan favorite in New York, which has always meant something for the Yankees (how else can you explain how Shelley Duncan got so much PT the past couple of years).
Make no mistake, Nady will get his fair share of ABs, but not necessarily enough to be fantasy relevant in a shallow-ish league (deeper leagues are a different story, as Ursa said).
