Buster tweets - O's met with Swisher Reps

12 posts in this topic

Why, Why, Why, WHY?

 

He doesn't fit the O's needs. He's an inadequate fielder. He puts together middle of the order numbers, but doesn't hit middle of the order.

I have never understood the love affair.

Huh??? :confused: Why are the Orioles even entertaining the idea of acquiring Nick Swisher??? Whose idea was this within the O's organization???

I mentioned the possibility of the O's signing Swisher in a post a couple months ago. The O's are paying attention. However, I doubt Swisher winds up with the O's since he's seeking far more than he's worth. Odds are that Swisher winds up on the West Coast.

He could fill that void that's been hanging over the O's ever since Kevin F'ing Millar left. ;);)

Your levels of self-importance are hysterical.

I hear from a highly placed relative in the O's front office that they actually do read the comments in this forum. Why wouldn't they? There are some very good suggestions floated by various posters from time to time and the lazy bums in the scouting department need all the help they can get.

The FO may read these boards.....but in the end it don't mean JACK (SI Robertson) because Petey only cares about 1 thing $$$$

Swisher at 1B seems worth a look depending on how much he wants.

 

that's the problem, he wants elite player money. I've heard numbers like $20M/yr for 10 yrs

I wouldn't spend much time worrying about signing Swisher....he's wayyyyyyyyyyyy above the Angelos comfort zone for salaries. Think more along the lines of Carlos Pena or Casy Kotchman.
