Nick Swisher, anyone?

Yes, as a former A and current White Sock, hes technically the "enemy". His 2008 batting avg. (.219) is pretty underwhelming. And of course, his style doesn't exactly fit the Angels' "mold" - takes alot of pitches, stikes out alot, low average, good power. But I can't help but think he'd be a great buy-low candidate for the Angels. He'll be just 28 at the start of '09 and a good bet to bounce back from his poor season. Hes a switch hitter with a lifetime OPS of .805. He can play all 3 outfield positions and first base. With Cabrera highly unlikely to reup with Chicago, they'll be in the market for a shortstop, and Aybar seems to be the kind of player Guillen would salivate over. Throw in a midlevel prospect and I bet the deal gets done. Now, this is obviously all speculation on my part, and I have no clue if the Sox are even thinking about moving him, especially with Jermaine Dye being a free agent. But Swisher was basically benched for the playoffs, so I can't imagine they're all that attached to him. Personally, I'd have no issues at all with saying goodbye to GA and starting a guy like Swisher everyday in left.
