A lot of videos and Yankees stuff so far this morning, but it's newsworthy so here we go again. Nick Swisher was brought in for the eighth inning of last night's blowout loss to the Rays and even recorded a strikeout.

I'm sure some radio talking heads will be all fired up about Swisher laughing and smiling when the team was down by ten runs. As I mentioned in my earlier Nick Swisher-Brett Favre post, though, what are you supposed to do? It's a game and there are 162 of them in a season. You're bound to lay some eggs and when a position player is called on to pitch, I don't think anyone is really taking it that seriously.

Sorry the video isn't in English, but it's the best I could do at this early morning hour.
