Interesting move. Will Swisher be NY new 1st basemen or is he going to be replacing someone in the OF?

What a dissappointing year he had last year.

..and here come da Yanks! While I'm surprised we supposedly only gave up Jeff Marquez.. I am never happy to give up a pitching prospect. Time will tell if the trade worked out but in the meantime it does make our OF significantly better. Not bad-not great IMO!

Unless he plays 1B not the OF, either way with the short porch in the new Yankee stadium he should hit 30+ bombs

I guess he will be the new CF. I guess they got a better deal then trading for Mike Cameron.

The Yankees have acquired first baseman Nick Swisher and Class AA right-hander Kanekoa Texeira from the White Sox, according to major-league sources.

Swisher, a switch-hitter, likely will play first base for the Yankees, replacing Jason Giambi, who is a free agent.

The exact players going back to the White Sox are not yet known, but sources say the White Sox will be receiving two minor leaguers and one major-league reserve. ESPN.com is reporting that Yankees Class AAA right-hander Jeff Marquez is in the deal.

FOX Sports on MSN - MLB - Yanks deal for Swisher, minor leaguer

After hitting over .400 for most of the Spring he sucked arse for 95% of the season last year. If he couldn't focus in Chicago, he'll be another high priced stiff in the Bronx. Oh and he'll be another thing for Steiny Jr. to cry about next year. As a BoSox fan I love that move

Okay the latest is...Jhonny Nunez, Jeff Marquez, and Wilson Betemit going back to the White Sox for Nick Swisher and Kanekoa Texeira.

At least we got another local boy in Texeira.

I hope you love this move in 9 months when the Yankees are going to the playoffs and are rocking hard. Ok Swisher sucked last year right? Yet he hit 24 home runs and got on base 33% of the time. I predict this year for Swisher, 260 average, 410 on base, 40 home runs and 110 rbis. I am assuming the Yankees get Tex with those numbers. Swisher will be hitting like 6-8 in the line-up, I love this move. Low paid, good CF/1st.

..and best of all -we're not done yet!!

Yankees 2009 Line-up
Posada
Tex
Cano
Jeter
Arod
Swish
Nady
Damon
And Orlando Hudson as a backup 2nd basemen (Yankees reporting that they want him even if they don't trade Cano).
However I say the Padres wake up and trade Peavy to the Yankees for Cano-Hughes and Kennedy.

Then the rotation is like
CC
Peavy
Wang
Mussina
Pettitte

Bullpen
Rivera
Joba
Veras
Marte
Ramirez
Bruney

Man that team will rock on!

Orlando Hudson is going to a NY team but they play in Flushing not the Bronx, Swisher is your 1b not your OF, yanks aren't getting texiera because all there moneys going to CC

Not sure where your info came from but tex hasn't signed anywhere yet

Yes, we will have a better lineup but there is concern for protecting Arod now.

..also I don't think we will end up with Peavy. We will have either or both CC and AJ Burnett..imo

Cash just said, if the season started today, Swish would be our 1B. Other than that he would be a corner OF or in emergency-CF!

Mark Texeira is not needed now and if we don't get him I wont really care too much. **it was a joke earlier, since everyone is so hot on that name now.. when I referred to Texeira... as in "Kanekoa Texeira"?

I still say Texiera stays in Aneheim especially since they already told Krod have a nice life

Not sure about Joba in the bullpen. Cashman is on the record as saying Joba will be a starter.
