The resolution for Nick Swisher is simple. Start getting hits. Swisher has been historically awful in his postseason career, posting a sub .150 average in four postseasons with the Yankees. The fact that a ball lined right to him was able to go to the wall and score Detroit’s go-ahead run only added fuel to the fire. Swisher has a chance to undo all the wrong that he has gotten himself into. He can do that tomorrow night with a decent offensive performance against Justin Verlander.
Chances are that Nick Swisher’s time in pinstripes has come to an end, and he is going out in a sour way with the fans. The thin-skinned player is taking fans’ frustrations too close to heart and turning his struggles over to blame the fans. Swisher is leaving the Bronx, and it couldn’t be at a more fitting time. Fans’ love for the right fielder has turned to heckling and impatience after Swisher has continued to struggle in the postseason.
