Nick Swisher was on the YES Network last night, and he took some exception to the idea that the Yankees haven’t enough enough to improve themselves this winter.You can throw me in the line of people who are saying, "why haven't the Yankees made any moves?". If I were grading the Yankees offseason to this point, it would get a D-. They're no better than they were when the season ended, and being that it ended with a ALDS exit the word "amazing" is not one I would use to describe it.
“I think it’s time to put us back on the map,” he said. “I think with the guys we have going into this season, we feel confident. A lot of people are saying, why haven’t the Yankees made any moves? Well, we didn’t win the most games in the American League last year with just nobody. We feel we have an amazing team, and we’re going to go out there and hope we prove that this year.”
“In New York, people expect to win, and we want to win for them,” Swisher said. “Regardless of whatever lineup we put on the field, we will be competitive.”
