Da, da, da, da, da,
Nick Swisher said
I’m so wired-up
Don’t need no coffee in my cup
Even on an unusually rainy, chilly day in Arizona, it was sunny and 80 degrees in Nick Swisher’s world.
Swisher, who signed a four-year, $56 million contract — the largest free in Cleveland history — this winter, has brought his endless energy and enthusiasm to the Indians, a club needing an infusion of something following a 94-loss season. While there’s some question whether he’s putting on an act, the 32-year-old Swisher says he’s just being himself and hopes his passion is contagious.
...Manager Terry Francona said he has spoken with Swisher about trying to do too much. Francona said Swisher “doesn’t have to carry the team on his shoulders.”
