Swisher Conference call

For any of you interested - Pete Abe has posted today's conference call with Nick Swisher

Pete's thoughts:

Nick Swisher seems like a good guy based on his just-concluded conference call.
*
He made it very clear that he wants to play first base, saying it’s his best position and that he would like to see what he can do if he finally gets a chance to play one position instead of hopping around. … He didn’t go into detail about last season beyond saying hitting leadoff wasn’t a good fit and that he learned a lot and was humbled by it.
*
In general, he seems thrilled to be with the Yankees.

The sound quality's pretty brutal (Ithink Pete probably just has his tape recorder running next to the speaker phone), but it was fun to hear. I agree with Pete that he seems like a good guy who is genuinely excited to be putting on the Pinstripes. Let's hope he can turn that enthusiasm into a productive season at first (or wherever he winds up).
