They are very similar players with similar historical performances.
Swisher is younger, while Willingham is destroying the ball right now but has a less consistent history.

I'm personally not interested in either. Who are you giving up?

Annibal Sanchez.. I have a surplus of SP, and need a OF because I lack depth in a for a 4 OF league.

I like Sanchez way more than Willingham/Swisher. So no, I wouldn't make this trade. What OF are on the WW?

First I would wait for Pagan to clear waivers and go for him... unless you have a low waiver claim, then just put one in for him.


I would much rather prefer Swisher for the whole season. Willingham is looking good but I think he's cooled off a bit and has already passed his highest point. Swisher you are more likely to get around 30 HR's and 100 RBI's. Especially since Swisher is a switch hitter and his home park favors lefties so much.
