Swishing For the Fences


There hasn’t been a hitter hotter than Nick Swisher in the last 6 games.   Swisher has 8 hits, 4 of which have left the yard, and he has driven in 10 runs.

Swisher now has 24 homers, 89 RBI’s and has scored 69 runs with 8 games remaining in the regular season.  These numbers are right along with what people have come to expect from him.  Since 2005, Swisher has always cracked 20 homers and driven in at least 80 runs.  However, during that span, he has broken the 30 homer mark only once back in 2006 and still has yet to drive in 100 runs.  With his recent hitting surge, he’s bumped his average up to .262 which is just seven points higher than his career average.

We all know what you get with Swisher in the regular season but it is going to be the upcoming postseason that will determine his offseason fate.

Swisher has been horrible in the playoffs throughout his career.

Currently, Swisher is hitting an anemic .169 with 4 homers and 6 RBIs in 38 career playoff games. Swisher, who is set to become a free agent this offseason, is due to make a nice payday but, having this current hot streak spill into October, could mean millions for him.

With the Yanks still unsure what Tex will provide, an aging A-Rod and Cano who is currently hitting just .190 in his last 10 games, Swisher is going to have to produce for these Yankees to have a chance at number 28.
