Are the Yankees now looking to move Swisher?

Okay...as my handle implies, I love the Swish.  I admit the man-crush, and still from an Oakland perspective I wonder if the A's could get Swisher from the Yankees and be better for it.  With the Teixera signing the Yankees really don't need Swisher at 1st.  That relegates him to either DH or corner outfield.  However, it would seem that the corner outfield is locked up with Nady, Matsui, and Damon...with CF being manned by Melky since the free agent CF class is pretty bad.  The problem I see is that Matsui and Posada are going to probably split the DH role leaving Swisher with nothing but being a 5th outfielder.  That sucks.  Same old story for Swisher when he was in Chicago...no position, and odd man out. 

Well, even I would not give a gem like Cahill or Andersen for Swisher at this point, but I am wondering if the Yankees would take anything else...maybe a few prospects (since we are loaded) to replenish their dead farm system. Or maybe they will take a better middle reliever then they have right now. 

 

Just wondering what the community thinks...
