Uh, NO. Nick Swisher is a GOOD hitter with a very good OBA but IMO he's a fringe fielder now and heading towards a DH on the fast track. Buck says he wants versatile players at DH and I want to allow Reimold one last opportunity to show his talent.
Even if Buck would be OK with Swisher at DH I wouldn't want to commit to more than two years to him and he CLEARLY wants more than that.

I can see it if its the right amount for the right length. I just think he's going to get a better offer elsewhere.
Maybe he will get a better offer, but there's an ARMY of veteran SPs on the market this winter. Saunders will DEFINITELY get a ML contract for 4M+, but I have my doubts there will be a guaranteed second year.

If he comes here then all talk of Brian Roberts is over. Also he seems likely to get more elsewhere.
I could see him taking Andino's role. He would cost more, but the bat is better. I just don't know about the glove..........
