I stand by Melky over Swisher, many here still think of him as the sloppy rookie when he was not yet ready for the outfield..The same problem is happening with Nunez you must be patient with younger players.... Watching Swisher posturing and complaining about every called strike looking to heaven after every chip hit and stumble around the outfield like a caveman may work for some but IMO he's a mediocre hot dog.
Melky was considered to be a bad influence on Cano, the Yankees valued Cano over Melky, so he had to go. I think that the some of the Yankees management still feels that way. If they make a trade with the Giants with Soriano. maybe he'll come back to the team. Jones and Ibanez aren't exactually tearing up the Stadium with their bats and fielding performamces.
