Some Quotes From Swish

Nick Swisher, along with Mets outfielder Angel Pagan, are being honored tonight as the 2011 recipients of the AHRC-NYC Foundation's Thurman Munson award. Prior to the ceremonies Swisher spoke to the media, and, as usual, was good for a quote or two.

This first quote comes from Erik Boland via Twitter:
"People say we don’t have the pitching. I don’t believe that. We’re going to find a way to win.”

And these are from Chad Jennings:

On the Yankees coming up short last season:
 “It just didn’t work out for us. Let’s move on,” he said. “… We’ve got an amazing lineup, top to bottom. We just want to go out there and prove that we’re as good as we think we are.”

On the Red Sox improvements:
“I think that’s great. I think it’s going to be that same rivalry again just like it is every (year). Everybody’s making changes. So are we. I think the changes we’ve made are for the better. I’m just excited to get it going… I kind of put that (analysis) in your guy’s hands. We just have to go out there and play every day.”
And his take on the Soriano signing:
“I think he just takes a whole inning off of a game. Him and Mo in the pen, it turns it into a seven-inning game. Not only that, on top of the great pitchers I think we have in the pen, we’re shortening the game to five, six innings. For us, we’ve got to feel good about that spot.”
Jennings also has a quote from Swisher on his thoughts about the Andy Pettitte situation (he hopes he comes back, but understands and respects his decision if he doesn't) and his off-season.
