BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)16 team dynasty league. My current OF (3) is a combo of Leonys Martin, Wil Myers, BJ Upton, Nick Swisher, Mike Morse. Ive got an offer of George Springer for my Michael Wacha. Im up in the air on it as I think my rotation (Verlander, Teheran, Ian Kennedy, Chris Tillman, Jose Quintana and Ubaldo) can handle the loss but Im wondering how you see a deal like that shaking out long term? Springers hit tool worries me long term as I could see him being a .240 hitter which impacts his counting stats production as well. What do you see he and Wacha turning into?
(dzemens from Adrian, MI)
I think I would make that deal in a dynasty. Springer's average might never be great, but his power/speed combo in fantasy is enticing and a Raul Mondesi type wouldn't surprise me. I like Wacha a lot, but I see him as more of a 2/3 type than an ace. Springer might not be a top real life hitter but he could be in fantasy because of the speed. I'd make the deal. (Mike Gianella)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)How far appart are you on Wil Myers and Nick Castellanos? I don't feel the gap is all that great and Castellanos is a year younger raking at AAA!
(Hector from Detroit)
I'm not sure there is a gap. I find Myers somewhat overrated to be honest. I see him as a Nick Swisher (which is very good and if he meets that ceiling, it's a tremendous success), but the perception seems to be far higher. (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the bigger bro/brah: Brett Lawrie, or Nick Swisher?
(Chase F'n Utley from Philadelphia F'n Clubhouse)
Swish is a bro and awesome at life. Lawrie is a brah and bleeds Red Bull. (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-22 18:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite player to watch?
(Joe from Seattle)
Nick Swisher. I've always been a huge fan (Jason Collette)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bigger future: Myers or Taveras?
(Brandon from Connectict)
Tavares by a lot. He can be a SUPERSTAR. Myers looks like a Nick Swisher to me which is nowhere near an insult. Swisher has had an excellent career. (Paul Sporer)
2012-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Sam, any idea why the phillies aren't interested in Nick Swisher? seems to fit their budget & lineup pretty well. Any guess what his final contract will be?
(Matt from NJ)
I think their priority of adding a center fielder put them on a different part of the free agent market. Now that they have Revere, it wouldn't surprise me if they're in the mix for Swisher, but it wouldn't surprise me even more if they have to stop spending money because they're really top-heavy and inflexible, salary wise. (Sam Miller)
2012-11-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is the Qualifying Offer for Free Agents under the new CBA a significant change or more of a window dressing treatment?
(Paul from DC)
Good question. We don’t have enough under the new CBA to spot trends, but I don’t see it as “window dressing.” There’s some gambling that could potentially come into play. The Nick Swisher deal could be one. The Yankees made the offer but they’re looking for him to reject it. Josh Hamilton is entirely different. It’s being reported that the Rangers still have interest, but the qualifying offer *appears* to be more like cover. After all, the qualifying offer needs to be $13.3 million. How much did Hamilton make last season? $13.75 million. (Maury Brown)
2012-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nick Swisher, will he be a Yankee next year or will he be high-fiving people in the crowd and buying twitter followers elsewhere?
(jlarsen from chicago)
Elsewhere. Could see him on the Giants, maybe.

Wait he bought some of his Twitter followers? Is that confirmed or just a conspiracy theory? (Sam Miller)
2012-10-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)If they ever did a Die Hard prequel, do you think Delmon Young would be a perfect fit to fill Reginald Val Johnson's role? Never knew Carl Winslow played baseball or was a #1 overall draft pick.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Delmon Young started Game One of the ALCS with a strikeout and a pop up, and I mentally mocked him for looking old and out of shape and uncoordinated. Then he went 3-for-his-next 4 with a homer and a double (even if the double was mostly Nick Swisher losing the ball in the lights). I'm not going to make fun of him anymore. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-09-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)if i told you Eric Chavez, Andrew Jones, and Nick Swisher were batting 5,6,7 for the yanks, what year would you think it was?
(workermonkey from ct)
This year, and it's not a bad thing. Brian Cashman has sometimes not paid much attention to his bench, but this year the Yankees have some depth. Wish Chavez still has power, but going back to 2008 he now has four HR in 346 ABs. I don't see why he should get ANY DH at-bats at this stage. Jones, though, has been GREAT after a slow start. (Steven Goldman)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Need a 2nd opinion on this trade: Cliff Lee, Nick Swisher, Hank Conger for David Price, Aaron Hill and Matt Wieters.
(Jquinton82 from NY)
I'm just going to use this as an example. People -- I have no problem evaluating fantasy trades, but you need to tell me how your team is set up, what type of league it is, etc. Otherwise I have no idea. All trades need context to be properly valued. (Eric Seidman)
2010-10-12 12:00:00 (link to chat)Occasionally I will see a team not hold a runner on first, if that runner is particularly slow and not likely to steal. But I've been wondering whether it doesn't make sense to play behind even a fast runner, if there's a left-handed pull hitter up who likes that hole. Nick Swisher, for example, seems to be tailor-made for this strategy. I'd rather give up the stolen base to Jeter if it means that I trade an out for that extra base. Does this make sense? Has anyone ever run the odds for this?
(Christopher from Nashville)
I've actually wondered about this myself, since clearly holding a runner at first comes with a cost (namely, the additional gap between the first and second basemen). The question is whether the cost outweighs the gains, and I think that's a very hitter-specific question and would depend on spray charts. You've got the profile of the player to whom you'd want to do it exactly right, I think. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Runners on first and third, one out, with a left-hander up (say, Nick Swisher). Is there ever a time that you neglect to hold the runner in order to field the inevitable ground ball to the right side? Teams always seem to hold the runner, even though a single is more harmful than than the stolen base would be. In any case, it seems as though there's some room for innovation in these situations, to go along with the radical shift.
(Christopher from Nashville)
The next time one of the smart guys on this site has a chat--Tommy Bennett will be here on 10/12--I urge you to ask him. My limited brain power makes it tough for me to answer a question that I'm sure has a more creative answer that I'm capable of mustering. That being said, it's an interesting question. (John Perrotto)
2010-09-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it inevitable that Cliff Lee and Carl Crawford end up in NY?
(yancey from n/a)
Technically, there's no place to play Crawford. Nick Swisher has trade value, but he's the only RF among the people in play. Gardner makes for an awkward fourth OF when you have two LH starters and he can't really play RF. I long thought he'd end up there; now I'm not sure.

Lee? Yeah, seems right. The rotation issues down the stretch assure that. He also is leverage should CC opt out, which seems somewhat likely right now. It may depend on how much they have to spend to keep Jeter and Rivera. (Joe Sheehan)
2010-09-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nick Swisher's walk rate has collapsed this year, but his BABIP when pulling the ball as a LHB is .540, which has apparently made up the difference in singles through the hole with men on first. What do you make of this? Good sign, bad sign, six/half dozen?
(Christopher from Nashville)
As I have no basis for comparison or appreciation of sample size with that kind of figure, I make nothing of it. I will say that the work Swisher's done to rework his swing with hitting coach Kevin Long has paid off handsomely, and that despite the walk rate he's a better hitter now than he was last year - the hits are more valuable than the walks - and he's a big reason the Yanks are in first place despite age catching up to Jeter, A-Rod and Posada. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)It appears that Jose Bautista is not a fluke, well, for this year at least. Any predictions for how much of the power is real and how much he'll regress next year? 25 HR?
(Bob from Seattle)
This kind of thing has happened before -- I always think of Felix Mantilla in 1964 ("I just aim at that wall there? Really? That's legal? Okay!" Bautista's change is supposed to be the result of an adjustment to his approach at the plate, and while you'd think it would be transient, I sort of buy the idea that the guy had untapped talent, that he was defeating his tools with a bad approach. In New York, we've seen Nick Swisher change his stance this year and pick up 50 points on his batting average, another example of the benefits even a small positive change can make. (Steven Goldman)
2010-07-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)The New York Yankees have been having abnormal years by players, CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes, Andy Pettitte, Robinson Cano, Mark Texiera, A-Rod, Nick Swisher, did I miss anyone? Are these years for real or has luck played a major factor in their years?
(SabrGreg from Westchester, NY)
Every team has its share of surprising performances, though, right? And how many of these are truly shocking over the sample size we're talking about? By the end of the season, Swisher probably won't be hitting .296, Pettitte won't have a sub-3.00 ERA, etc. If I had call one of those seasons the most "for real," I'd go with Hughes. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-06-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Following up on "what is Brett Gardner worth", would you consider trading him for Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko or Nick Swisher? I have OF depth...
(Ted from the cubicle)
I'd unload Konerko for Gardner. I mean, is Konerko really going to hit 46 HR this year? He has that Bautista-esque feel of a guy who will fall off in the second half. I think the benefit Konerko would have provided is for those who drafted him and got the brunt of his torrid start, but acquiring him at this juncture -- or keeping him -- isn't likely to add much. And given that Swisher and Dunn are better players than he anyway, yeah get Gardner's steals for the surplus power. (Eric Seidman)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Whenever I hear someone singing the blues about Robinson Cano, I think of Horace Clarke. I was 7-years old when Clarke took over 2B for Bobby Richardson. The Yanks’ switch-hitting second baseman of the late 60s/early 70s - best known for breaking up no-hitters in the 9th inning three times in 1970, and rarely turning the double-play - actually had a fairly productive season in 1969 with career highs in nearly every offensive category. But what still blows my mind is his 9 – yes nine! – extra-base hits in 579 at-bats in 1968, Compared to “Hoss,” Robinson Cano IS Rod Carew; heck compared to Clarke, Cano is LOU GEHRIG!!
(rich from nj)
The problem with Cano is that he's inconsistent, and as I have written many times, he kills you when he's cold. In contrast, let me offer Nick Swisher, who batted something like .150 in May but still had a .311 OBP because he took a ton of walks. Cano can be on a hot streak and still not produce a .311 OBP. (Steven Goldman)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Damon, Matsui, Cashman, Girardi --- how would you rank order the likelihood of their returning to the Bronx in 2010?
(frank leja from DC)
Frank Leja??? Now there's an obscurity for you. And a deceased one. I say Damon and Matsui no, Cashman and Girardi yes. I don't think Girardi has done a bad job. He's sometimes a little too enamored of the small ball, and his usage of the bullpen isn't always what I want it to be, but he's been more aggressive in trying to work out relief problems on a staff-wide basis than Joe Torre ever was. He also favored Brett Gardner over Melky Cabrera (or did) which earns points with me, has Joba in the rotation, and has tried batting Nick Swisher second. He's also a lot more candid with the public than he was last year. I'm not sure why he should take the fall if this club doesn't win. (Steven Goldman)
2009-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who should be the Yankees opening day CF in 2009?
(Snakedoctor18 from New York)
Has the ship sailed on Zombie Mickey Mantle yet?

I'm certainly not wowed by the Yankees' in-house options, a pool that nominally includes Melky Cabrera, Brett Gardner, Johnny Damon and Nick Swisher. I don't think the latter two can carry the position defensively anymore, and I'm less than wowed by the offense offered by either of the former two, unless Cabrera has spent the entire winter being beaten over the head with a fungo bat in an effort to impart the slightest modicum of common sense into his thick skull.

Which means that a better solution must lie outside the organization. I'd be willing to see if Jim Edmonds has anything left given his rebound with the Cubs. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steve, there are several reasons Kenny Williams may have traded Nick Swisher that have nothing to do with money/talent. As it's been reported on the Chicago stations, Swisher shut out the coaching staff completely last year, blew off the hitting coach when he tried to help him, and simply withdrew into himself once he was put in a platoon. Additionally, Swisher's locker room clown act was beginning to wear thin (his partner in crime, Toby Hall, has also been shown the door). Just something to keep in mind before blasting Kenny Williams...
(Josh from Chicago)
I wasn't necessarily blasting him, but the trade was uneven, even if his reasons are of the off-field variety. Whatever the issues with Swisher's personality and comportment, he's a guy with value, a four-position guy who has produced in the past and even in a miserable year took a whole bunch of walks and hit with power. Players are traded for all kinds of reasons, even the one you site--that they're too annoying to live with. That still doesn't mean that the team shouldn't get value for them. At first glance it doesn't appear Williams did that. (Steven Goldman)
2008-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Marc, At what point this season should I have cut bait with Nick Swisher and Chris B. Young? Thanks!
(Tony from Brooklyn, NY)
I wrote a piece in July saying that maybe it was time to give it up on Chris B. Young for 2008, and though he improved a bit after that, overall he wasn't of much use for anyone until then. As for Swisher, I kept thinking some of that lost power would come back, and though his homers did, nothing else picked up with it.

It's tough to cut guys who you think are going to do well, especially when you are making them freely available for someone else to possibly benefit from. Both of those guys fit into that category of "come back to haunt you" players, but sometimes you can't just keep underperforming guys around. (Marc Normandin)
2008-05-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sorry for multiple questions, but what is wrong with Nick Swisher? I expect the low average, but .200? And only 4 homers playing in the Cell??
(Dennis from Chicago)
He has a big BABIP problem, with a .250 rate when he should be around .350 given his liner rate. He's been hitting a lot of weak grounders too, and it's dragging his averages down. I think he'll straighten his swing out, but you might want to find someone else to fill his roster spot until then. (Marc Normandin)
2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Nick Swisher and Paul Konerko -- are they just slumping, or toast?
(Bruce from New York)
Just slumping. You want to leave the B and the L on the plate and get some toast, you'll have to look elsewhere. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike. Diehard 411 fan. I focused on position scarcity this year in my draft and didn't take a 1st baseman (Jackson) until the end of the draft. So I wanted to ask you this: I did take Nick Swisher, who should be a solid OF, but are his stats good as a 1B? In a 10 teamer, no less? P.S. And should I be worried that Dusty Baker is going to bury Edwin Encarnation this year?
(akachazz from DC)
I think Swisher will have a fine year on South Side so yes and I like Jackson as well.

Please Dusty don't do it!!!!!!!!!!! (Mike Siano)
2008-02-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for your great work. Your interview with Brian Bannister was one of the best things I read all year last year. Just wanted to ask you your opinion on two players: James Shields and Nick Swisher. What do you see in their futures and who do you think is the more valuable player?
(Dennis from LA)
Thanks, Dennis. Bannister makes any interviewer look good.

I recently had someone opine to me concern about Shields' mechanics, specifically that they haven't been consistent over the course of his career. Granted, that's not my opinion -- I'm only passing along what I heard -- but if true it poses a question.

Swisher can hit. Given a choice of the two, I'd take Swisher. (David Laurila)
2008-01-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nate - what does Nick Swisher's change in scenery do for his PECOTA?
(JD from CT)
Quite a bit, actually. Our general rule of thumb is that a ballpark is most valuable to a player when it matches his strengths -- and The Cell, which boost power significantly but not so much the other aspects of offense -- is a perfect match for Nick Swisher. With that said, I'm not sure I loved that trade for them, but the White Sox' offense is at lesat likely to be formidable. (Nate Silver)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day OneNick Swisher career playoff stats down to .153/.318/.250 now (90 PA) (Rob McQuown)
2010-07-13 16:30:00All-Star GameWith the emergence of Brett Gardner, I keep wondering if the Yankees are still going to make their long-rumored free agent bid for Carl Crawford. An outfield of Crawford/Granderson/Gardner with Nick Swisher as the DH seems defensively strange and offensively light--though death to flying things. (Steven Goldman)
2009-10-28 17:00:002009 WS Game OneHi everyone, and welcome to the World Series Game One roundtable. Players are being introduced to over-glorious music and Nick Swisher even got a hand. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-16 13:00:00NLCS Game Two/ALCS Game OneEvery time Nick Swisher reaches base, remember that if the Yankees had had their way, you would have been watching Xavier Nady making an out. (Steven Goldman)
2009-06-09 14:30:002009 Draft CoverageOne of the great things about being at BP is having great help just a few keyboard clicks away. I asked Rany, who did his fantastic series on draft history, if he remembers a draft that was better 11-20 than 1-10. Rany jumped into action for me, and found just one in 15 years: 2002.

Top Ten: B.J. Upton, Zack Greinke, Prince Fielder, Jeff Francis.
11-20: Hermida, Joe Saunders, Scott Kazmir, Nick Swisher, Cole Hamels, James Loney, Denard Span.

The best example is 1994, where Garciaparra, Konerko and Varitek went 12-14. Needless to say, the top 10 that boasted Paul Wilson, Ben Grieve, Todd Walker and Jaret Wright wasn't as good. (Bryan Smith)
2008-10-13 17:00:00NLCS Game FourI was just listening to Vin Scully's call of the game, and he reported a good line on Blanton, who apparently lives deep in the backwoods of Kentucky. He said Nick Swisher told him that you know you're getting near to Blanton's place because your cell phone stops working - that's how far into the wilderness he is. I thought, "I guess Will can't ever accept an invitation to Blanton's house. He'll have an anxiety attack." (Steven Goldman)
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesNick Swisher, just in time to watch allllll the horses running out in the fields. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-30 16:30:00Twins/White Sox Play-In GameWill,

bench players: Nick Swisher, Sox... Brian Buscher, Min (William Burke)
2008-09-30 16:30:00Twins/White Sox Play-In Game"benrosenberg02 (boston): Why Wise and not Swisher?"

I don't know, and frankly, the whole issue is getting a little weird. The White Sox are playing DeWayne Wise, and using Ken Griffey Jr. in center field, while benching Nick Swisher...and they're eight innings from the playoffs. (Joe Sheehan)
