The only issue was that it was all or nothing with him. He's a streak guy. Only upside was solid defense.
I seriously snorted when I saw those numbers, Swish just robbed the Indians blind. At that rate, I'm glad the Yanks didn't bring him back. They'll get their draft pick. I've seen some rumors on them trying to trade for Justin Upton, but the price seems rather high. Saw another one about a relatively cheap trade to bring Alfonso Soriano back, where the cubs would eat most of the salary. I don't like either of them, but this season is looking like it's in trouble.
