The New York Yankees acquired center fielder-first baseman Nick Swisher in a trade with the Chicago White Sox on Thursday.
The Yankees traded infielder Wilson Betemit and minor league pitchers Jeff Marquez and Jhonny Nunez to Chicago in exchange for the switch-hitting Swisher and minor league pitcher Kanekoa Texeira.
Swisher, 27, hit .219 with 24 home runs in 153 games with Chicago this season.
More on the trade..
Thoughts? Can Swisher bounce back from an ugly 2008 season and do well in the Bronx? Will his dynamic personality sit fine in the company of Giradi, Jeter, A-Rod? Interesting move, not sure what I think of it yet.
