Why a Nick Swisher trade will not actually benefit Cleveland

Nick Swisher is a big name going around the hot stove lately, with reports out that Cleveland could be looking to move the soon-to-be 34-year-old in a bad contract-for-bad contract swap.

Nick Swisher’s (brutal) season comes to an end

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.
