Jordan writes: "The deal is larger than the four-year pact offered by the Tribe earlier this off season to outfielder Shane Victorino, who instead signed a three-year, $39 million contract with Boston. Swisher was headed to an undisclosed city to meet with another team after his stop in Cleveland."
That sounds like a great deal, especially if Nick can get it at this point in his career. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.com says that Nick Swisher's deal with the Indians is more like $13 million per year. Who really knows I guess,but read Heyman's account HERE.
But here's the kicker and after I read this, I thought "Wow, if I'm the Indians and I'm reading Heyman, I'm withdrawing my offer from Swisher." Heyman writes:
"...Swisher wants to go to the Dodgers... Swisher, who loved New York and lives in L.A., presumably doesn't have Cleveland as his first choice despite being from West Virginia and playing at Ohio State."
"Well this is awkward!"
It is very important to also explain that Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News says Swish has 2 offers on the table, read his Tweet HERE.
That being said, it's clear... Nick's on the move and I wish him well no matter what. If anything new is revealed, we'll bring it to you right here on Bleeding Yankee Blue.
