YANKEES TRADE NOTHING FOR SWISHER!!!!!

YANKEES ACQUIRE 1B/OF NICK SWISHER AND RHP KANEKOA TEXEIRA FROM THE WHITE SOX
IN EXCHANGE FOR INF WILSON BETEMIT AND TWO MINOR LEAGUE PITCHERS

THEY GOT HIM FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!

Update by Nate: The two minor league pitchers are Jeff Marquez and Johnny Nunez. Marquez was once a solid prospect but his numbers have decreased significantly recently, and is now not much of a prospect. Johnny Nunez put up decent numbers after being acquired for the Nationals for Alberto Gonzalez, but he is a relief pitcher, and doesn't profile as a closer, so he's really a spare part. Betemit has shown potential, but has not produced very much and should be replaceable.
