In most cases, we make every attempt to remain professional and unbiased in our website's views and opinions. Despite the fact that our staff are die hard Yankee fans, our goal is to away bring you hard facts, whittling out the emotional knee jerk reactions that have become most fan sites.

We say in most cases, because frankly, this is not one of those times.

WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER! WE GOT NICK SWISHER!

AHHHAHAHAHAAHAH!!! WAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Ok, now back to normal-ness.

The Yankees acquired outfielder/first baseman Nick Swisher from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for Wilson Betemit and two minor leaguers (the Bombers picked up a sinkerballing minor leaguer as well).

We can not begin to stress how huge this deal is for the organization, as well as for my personal video gaming pleasures. I'm possibly Nick Swisher's biggest fan, and usually wind up overpaying to get him to play for the Bombers in the MLB 2K Sports franchise series, so this year, I won't have to!

We'd like to point out that, yes, Swisher had possibly the worst batting average (.217) among active players to qualify for the batting crown, but we can explain. Chicago misused Swisher, making him their leadoff guy, when he has no right leading off a lineup.

Swisher's ability to work the count fits in nicely with a perenial patient Yankee lineup, and would be a great #6 or #7 batter in the lineup. Swisher's acquisition is an excellent insurance policy, in the case the Bombers can't land Teixeira.

So, in conclusion, great move on the Yankees end, picking up a quality bat and getting rid of Wilson Betemit in the process.
