Very productive with the Yankkes and off to a good start in Cleveland.
Makes you just wonder if he really wanted to play for the Sox in the first place.
The Sox did quite a bit to put Swisher in a more difficult place to succeed. Swisher is a 1st baseman and corner outfielder. The Sox trotted Swisher in CF for 70 games. And IIRC put him all over the lineup even leading off.
The Sox lost in the two Swisher trades, badly.
