How is Bleacher Creature favorite Nick Swisher fitting in with the Tribe fans?  Nick Swisher – Roll Call. Is Russell Martin flourishing in Pittsburgh? Did Raul Ibanez bring his clutch bat from the Bronx to Seattle? And is Eric Chavez’s body holding up in Arizona? During this past off-season, the Yankees lost four key players from the 2012 squad. Since the Yankees are off today before they play host to the scrappy Oakland Athletics this weekend, I thought it was a good time to check-in on how each is doing so far this season.

Swisher the Outfielder

When Nick Swisher originally signed with the Indians this winter, it was as the starting right fielder. Shin-Soo Choo had already been traded and Mark Reynolds had been signed to be the first baseman.

Wahoo Walkoff! Stubbs Makes It Five Straight For Tribe

With high-priced free agents Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher on the shelf for the last couple weeks and last few days respectively, one would think that Progressive Field was burning. Instead, that smoke you’re seeing is coming from the Tribe bats, who have stayed warm without their leadoff and cleanup hitters. Actually, they’ve heated up and diversified the contributions. Last...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 28

No history for the Pirates.  No first place either.   Awwww.  Cheer up Panda.  At least we have no Jonathan Sanchez also! I don’t even know what to say.  I’m so damn sick of the Brewers.  Even after Russell Martin caught them stealing signs they just murdered the Pirates. I don’t even want to watch…
