I apologize if this already got some attention, but I've really noticed how much the abscence of Swisher hurt us in the last series. His abscence seemed especially hurtful on Tuesday night with Hat facing the leftie pitchers in two critical situations.
I think they may miss him not only for his switch-hitting bat and versatile defense, but maybe they most miss that brash positivity he brings to the team. I'm hoping (and predicting) that his return will also mark the return of the bunched hits and runs.
Sorry I don't have any stats to back these observations up.
