Nick Swisher needs your All-Star votes
If you pick up a fan ballot for the All-Star Game, you’ll quickly find that your choices in voting for a Yankees outfielder are limited to Johnny Damon, Brett Gardner and Xavier Nady – the outfield that Joe Girardi trotted out on April 6 at Baltimore.
So if Nick Swisher wants to spend time in St. Louis this summer, he’s going to need your help. A group of Swisher fans are chanting, “We want Swisher!” in cyberspace, and this has nothing to do with the Yankees being down by double digits.
The Web site www.voteswisher.com has step-by-step instructions on how you can help send No. 33 to the Midsummer Classic. He’s played like one so far – seven home runs, a patient eye and sixth in the American League in OPS (1.066). And he has a 0.00 ERA!
