Nick Swisher signed with the Cleveland Indians today.
As a New York Yankee fan, I’m glad I won’t be subjected to “Swishalicious“‘s miserable postseason flailing anymore.
I will miss the sky-point after a double against the Royals in June and the tongue-wagging though.
Anyway, his pappy Steve Swisher is probably pretty hyped up, bro.
New York will miss your crazy shenanigans.
Our final memory will be of you horrifically misplaying that Delmon Young’s humpback liner in Game One of the ALCS.
Pariah. Spitter. Hall of Famer. Gold Glover. Classic Met. Arizona Diamondback. Wearer of jaunty mustaches. Leveler of Excellence. Possessor of pensive looks.
Roberto Alomar was a wearer of many different hats. Including this dope San Diego Padres cap.
Nice story about Jay Bell today on Deadspin.
Also, in this picture he looks like an extra from “Major League.”
From National Pastime, on this date in baseball Julio Franco busted up a Dave Stieb no-hit bid with a two-out, two-strike single.
Julio must’ve been chock full of Jesus Juice that day.
Another Rated Rookie, Greg Swindell.
Although he made the All-Star team in 1989, he’s more remember for his stellar college career at the University of Texas.
Sandy Alomar Jr. played 20 years in the Majors… I’d say Topps was 50% right about him being a “Future Star.”
He did hit a massive home run off of Mariano Rivera in the 1997 ALDS. Oh, the days of the five-game ALDS!
Recently, the Friars donned these classic uniforms in a game against the Mets. What a great look.
“Major League” has been in heavy rotation on HBO recently.
In honor of this joyous occasion, here’s Pete Vuckovich — who portrayed douchey New York Yankee slugger Clu Haywood.
He was last seen being unable to throw out Willie Mays Hayes at the plate on Jake Taylor’s notorious bunt single.
Yesterday, the oldest player still active in MLB.
Today, the second oldest.
Omar Vizquel, 45, became the oldest player to play shortstop in major-league history earlier this month.
Guess you can get away with that if you won 11 Gold Gloves back in the day.
Bad job by the Mariners to trade him to Cleveland for Felix Fermin and Reggie Jefferson. Can’t even blame the suits at Nintendo for that blunder.
