The Yankees made their 2nd move of the off-season today (the first was re-signing Marte to a 3 yr $12MM contract when he sucked last year) by trading for the great Nick Swisher. As you can read in the story below:
Nick Swisher had the worst batting average among MLB players with at least 500 AB's last year. THE WORST!!! "We're excited with the addition of Nick Swisher," Joe Girardi said in a statement released by the team. "We feel he has a ton of upside.
Ton of upside??? The guy is the worst hitter in the Majors! How can he not get any better. That's like saying I see a ton of upside in McDonald's cheeseburgers becoming healthier. They can't get any worse for you as it is.
Unfortunately the off-season has gotten off to a slow start for the Yankees and I don't see it getting any better. They'll overpay to get C.C. who in 2 years will weigh 300 pounds and be worse than Bartolo Colon (remember him? Yeah I barely do either).
At least the Redskins will destroy the Cowboys this week.
P.S. - Next week is the Kickball championship tournament. I know ya'll can't wait for updates, so check back next Friday. VIVA LA HOFF
