Nady or Swisher to be traded?

New, comments

There have been recent talks with other teams, and one of the pair could be traded soon.

Between the two, I'd rather hold on to Swisher. Despite a lower batting average, he has a signicantly better on-base percentage, is younger, a switch-hitter, and plays 1b (unlike Nady).

UPDATE Jan. 9, 1:13 pm:

Brian Cashman has received more offers for Swisher, but is more amenable to trading Nady.

 

- The Red Sox signed John Smoltz and Rocco Baldelli. Along with Brad Penny, they're taking chances that they rebound from injuries and/or poor years.
