It looks like Nick Swisher got away from the Yankees just in time. They seem to be plummeting down a dark hole at a rapid pace, and it is only Spring Training.
Injury after injury, they are not having the best of luck right now. With Curtis Granderson's broken bone, Mark Teixeria's injured wrist, and Alex Rodriguez out with hip issues, it seems as though the Yankees are falling apart one accident at a time. Someone over at Yankee stadium needs to turn around twice and tip their hat to the west, or some type of crazy healing superstition to help out this poor team. Thankfully, Derek Jeter's ankle is healing up well, along with Mariano Rivera's knee, and CC Sabathia's elbow. That should put a little spark back into the dragging energy of the team.
They are the Yankees though. They will bounce back, even if they have to dig their way out of this hole using nothing but their helmets as shovels. These guys are fighters. Not lazy players.
While taking that persistent mentality to Clevela...
