What should the Cleveland Indians expect from Nick Swisher in 2015?

Terry Francona and Nick Swisher discuss MLB’s Pace of Play rule changes

Rob Manfred, baseball’s new commissioner, has been on the job for a short period of time, but has already shown that he is not afraid to push Major League Baseball in new directions if he believes said changes will make for a better product for the fans.1 It was during just last season that Keith Olbermann and our own Craig questioned whether MLB even wants to speed up the games...

Swisher Adds Bunting To His Game

No news is good news in the early days of Spring Training as practices are getting underway and the Indians camp (outside of the Trevor Bauer drone controversy) has been silent so far. One point of interest before position players are even officially supposed to be in camp is that Nick Swisher has been working specifically on his bunting skills (see video below) every day after normal...

Put Your Money Where Your Bat Is

Back before 2013, the Tribe spent gobs of money on two marquee free agents when they inked Nick Swisher to a four year, $56 million deal and then shocked the world by signing Michael Bourn to one worth $48 million over the same four years. The Bourn deal seemed like a bargain at the time, as the 2012 All-Star had been holding out for a deal worth around $75 million. Currently, however...

Top Ten Ohio Born Cleveland Indians

Professional baseball isn’t like the amateur ranks, where players generally stay where they are. The current Indians 40 man roster contains the same amount of players from Taiwan as from Ohio (one each in C.C. Lee and Nick Swisher). Despite 39 players on the current roster that hail from lands outside the Buckeye state, there have been plenty of Indians greats who were born locally...

Nick Swisher On The Mend!

Who Needs to Rebound? Naming a player as a rebound player needs to be defined. First, it’s not necessarily the most improved player, which is typically an unproven player who has a break out season. Second, it’s not a player getting only marginally better. Instead, it is a player who had a bad year, requiring significant improvement to return to form the following year. This...

Shutting Down Swisher May Be Best for Everyone

There have been letdowns and disappointing seasons on the Cleveland Indians this year, and then there has been Nick Swisher. Signed in December 2012 to become the new face of the franchise, things have not gone exactly as planned for Swisher. Since inking his four-year, $56 million deal that includes an option for 2017, Swisher has hit just .231 as an Indian, with nearly 25% of his...
