I honestly think Swisher will peak at 25 homers. Thats it.


Most players do not peak at age 27. A lot of them do yes but not most. Chances are, Swisher is still in his peak.

He should have some more lineup padding and a short porch to shoot for in NY. I would project him to hit about 30 HRs.

Magic Number for age has always been 27.

All I am saying is that I do not think Swisher will excel to the point people think he will.
He had a very strong line up in Chicago and I do not see that effecting him.
The short porch yea possibly, but you have to hit the ball in order to produce.
