True story: I know a guy in a league who, about a month ago, traded away Josh Hamilton and Dana Eveland for Nick Swisher and Brad Penny. When I asked why he would do such a thing, the guy simply replied that, from that point forward, he felt Swisher would put up much better numbers than Hamilton. Currently, it's too close to call on whether such a bold prediction will prove to be true. But with Hamilton banged up and Swisher raking like he did tonight, this guy I know is looking less crazy by the day.
Nick Swisher: 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 HR, 5 RBI
