    Yeah, as he gets towards the end of his career, he needs to have his head together to face whatever comes after baseball.

      ​He, hopefully, has a lot of years left to live. Would be a shame to waste it.

        Watched some of the game today against Detroit. I really miss the Tiger's old stadium. That was a great ball park.

          Nick Swisher Signs Minor League Deal With Yankees

          Nick Swisher has signed a minor league contract with the New York Yankees and is expected to join Triple-A Scranton on Thursday.
          The 35-year-old infielder/outfielder, who played for the Yankees from 2009 to 2012, was released by Atlanta late in spring training. He has been slowed the past couple years by knee problems.
          “He was a good player here,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said before Wednesday’s game at Toronto. “He’s had a couple of frustrating years, years that have been plagued with some injuries. We’re curious to see what he’s got left.”
          Girardi said he expects Swisher to play both outfield and first base at Scranton.

              Cubs acquire star closer Aroldis Chapman in trade with Yankees

              The Chicago Cubs have added Aroldis Chapman for their push to the World Series, acquiring the flame-throwing closer in a blockbuster trade with the New York Yankees.

              The teams announced the trade Monday, saying that Chapman is expected to join the National League-leading Cubs for their game Tuesday against the crosstown rival Chicago White Sox.

              The Yankees received a four-player package, headlined by top shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, in exchange for Chapman, who was suspended for the first 29 games of this season under baseball's domestic violence policy.
              The Cubs paid a steep price, parting with Torres, versatile pitcher Adam Warren and minor league outfielders Billy McKinney and Rashad Crawford.
              Torres, a 19-year-old at Class A, is the centerpiece of the deal for the Yankees. He is the Cubs' top-ranked prospect and No. 26 in baseball, according to ESPN Insider Keith Law. Torres was scratched about 20 minutes before first pitch Sunday afternoon.

              Chicago originally acquired Warren in an earlier trade with the Yankees that sent Starlin Castro to New York. The right-hander went 3-2 with a 5.91 ERA in 29 games this season with the Cubs.

              McKinney, 21, is at Double-A. He was part of the 2014 trade that brought Addison Russell to Chicago from Oakland.

                Yankees need to get younger and invest smarter with their money. I look forward to seeing what they do when A Rod, CC, and Texeria come off the books. I thought CC's deal was great, but they should have let him walk when he opted out after his 3rd season.

                  Tex is done after this season. Cashman definitely is moving in the right direction.

                  I would trade Beltran, too.

                    Yanks in full rebuild mode. Which I basically agree with, but I'm not sure I would have traded Miller, who is not a rental.

                    Today @yankees acquire OF Clint Frazier, LHP Justus Sheffield and RHPs Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen from Cleveland for LHP Andrew Miller.

                      By acquiring P Justus Sheffield and OF Clint Frazier (plus 2 more) for Miller, Yanks got 2 of Indians best prospects. ESPN first with names.

                        I like that Cashman is stocking up the system, better to retool now than lymp along.

                          Cashman is absolutely killing it.

                          Jack Curry ‏@JackCurryYES Looks like Beltran is going to the Rangers for Dillon Tate, said @Ken_Rosenthal. Tate was Rangers' first round pick last year.
                          #4 overall pick last year.

                              My favorite Yankee photo. You're a questionalbe fan if you don't know who's pitching.
                              I take that back, I thought you could click on the picture and see it in its actual size. The pitcher is Babe Ruth.

                                I won't miss Nova, good stuff but inconsistent.
