Braves Interested In Damon or Swisher?

From Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi:
The Braves have talked to the Marlins about Uggla, but one source describes Atlanta’s interest as only “mild.” A trade for the Yankees’ Nick Swisher or the signing of free-agent left fielder Johnny Damon might be preferable to the Braves.

The Yankees still could move Swisher if they wish to obtain Damon or another outfielder; they are not looking to trade Swisher, one source said, but also are not opposed to it.
I really hate the idea of trading Swisher. First of all, and most importantly, he's very productive and has a relatively cheap contract. Second, every teams needs a knucklehead. And before you roll your eyes at that comment think of what he brought to that clubhouse this year and how much fun that team had. He was a major part of that.
