New York Yankees right fielder Nick Swisher will be testing the free-agent market this upcoming winter, and according to reports from Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, he's looking for a payday similar to Jayson Werth's back in 2010.
That would be around seven years, $126 million. The Yankees would be wise not to grant Swish his wish.

Swisher has another guess coming if he thinks he's worth that kind of money, and he's sure not going to get it from the Bronx Bombers.
Here are seven reasons why the Yankees shouldn't re-sign Swisher.
