Nick Swisher to the Yanks for Jeff Marquez & Betimet

At least according to ESPN

This is a great move.  Swisher is a solid player coming off a bad, but mostly unlucky, year.  I forget if he's signed to an extension or not, if not, they've got at least 2 years of a decent, young outfielder who can play all 3 positions. 

Marquez probably falls into the class of guys the Yanks traded for Nady/Marte - serviceable, but not much more than 5th starters.  In the Yanks case, he's already behind Hughes, Kennedy, Aceves, Giese, Brackman, etc. so they're not giving up a piece that they're going to miss.
