Nick Swisher has struggled for most of the 2012 postseason with a .154 average and one RBI in eight games. This lack of production will ultimately hurt his deal in this coming free-agent market where he will likely be looking for a new team.
Swisher was blamed by fans last week for Derek Jeter's injury due to misplaying a ball earlier in the contest. That was the last straw for Swisher.
The 31-year-old told the New York Daily News, “It’s a crazy game. Being here in New York, obviously there’s a lot of expectations. I don’t know what to say, bro. I’m just going to kind of let it go.”
This should mean a better chance for the Red Sox when Swisher hits the open market after the World Series.
