Just a thought
He's from West Virginia; I grew up with him (he's a bit younger than me and knew my sister pretty well). He did have a spectacular career for the Buckeyes, though. Couldn't let that one slide; we don't have a ton of big leaguers coming out of WV and we've got to stake our claim to the ones we produce.
If it were up to Swisher, I think he might like playing in Cincinnati or Cleveland. He was not thrilled with the trade to Chicago at all. As it is, I don't think the Reds have a ton to offer the Sox. If we could pull this one off, great. But I don't see it happening. That said, I'm a big fan of his and think he would be a nice piece to our puzzle.
