Funny, in '09 when Swisher helped the Yankees win a WS championship, the common thread was "He's brought some much-needed levity to the Yanks' clubhouse. It was too sterile in there before he arrived."
Now it's "Swisher is immature and not as professional as we want our Yankees to be."
Sorry, I'm no NY hater, but I do have some Yankee friends and it's been hilarious watching them do a complete 180 on Swisher. They used to love him; now they want him gone. However, nothing has really changed with him. Numbers are pretty much the same (a bit down this year, granted) and he's always behaved in this fashion. It's just that winning cures all. Losing magnifies everything.
