My love for Mr. Swisher runs unconditional. At least until the next slump.

Red-hot hitting, and an inning of relief to boot. Plus, he's an entertaining chap.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:




After striking out Gabe Kapler, Swisher tossed the ball into the clubhouse for a souvenir. Michael Kay (video below) said that was inappropriate.

Well, Michael Kay can shove it.

Inappropriate? Are you kidding me? The guy's a first baseman and he struck a batter out. Let him have a little fun out there. He was the best pitcher all night, and he shouldn't have even been in that situation. He was a hell of a lot more entertaining than the rest of the team last night. Kay said Swisher was embarrassing Kapler.

Well, he should be embarrassed! He was struck out by Nick Swisher!

Seriously, Kay needs to grow a pair.

Plus also, don't Facebook friend Denny Neagle. He's sketchy.
