Hi everyone, well what a great day for me to get started with this venture. The New York Yankees have traded Wilson Betemit,Jeff Marquez and Jhonny Nunez to the Chicago Whitesox for Nick Swisher and Kanekoa Texiera a minor league pitcher. Well we all know Betemit was only great in the Yankees minds but never amounted to much. Jeff Marquez I had the pleasure of meeting and what a great kid he is, good luck to him and Nunez was only hear for a few months last year in the minors. I think this deal is good. All of you out there that thinks this precludes the Yanks from getting TEX dont think that, if they do get Tex they will play Swisher in CF or LF, this just gives them flexibility. Nick swisher is young a pretty good defender, a switch hitter and has a good heart, more of that grinder that we love so much. I believe part of the Yanks problems have been having guys like Giambi and Abreu who really dont care so much win or lose as long as they get their money and numbers. With Swisher and Nady this changes the dynamic and also we are getting younger.
