Line of the Day: Nick Swisher: July 30th, 2011

Nick Swisher was a combined 6-for-10 with two home runs, five RBI, four runs and 13 total bases as the New York Yankees swept a doubleheader from the Baltimore Orioles. (video recap)

Line: 10 AB | 4 R | 6 H | 5 RBI; 2B | 2 HR

My fantasy perspective: Swisher is quietly on pace for a .270/20/90 season with an OBP near .380 and a wOBP over .360. Not bad for a player who has batting in seven spots in the Yankee lineup.

After hitting just .213 with three home runs and 20 RBI over his first 49 games played, Swisher has rebounded by hitting .326 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI over his last 50 games. Can someone explain to me how he's only owned in 75% of Yahoo! leagues?

Question: Swisher is a free agent come 2012. Will the Yankees bring him back or will he chase the dollars?
