According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News ( Twitter ), Nick Swisher has signed with the Indians. A four year, $56 million dollar deal with a 5th year option depending on plate appearances, to total $70 million. 

My Thoughts;

Honestly, Swisher is not a bad player but I just don’t see him being worth this much. But, then again everyone in baseball is overpaid, so it doesn’t mean much to say that. The Indians have a decent team, and I think Swisher should help them, but I’m not sure he is the missing ingredient at that cost to really make them a playoff team.
