Thanks for only costing us 0.15 games! It could have been worse!

I appreciate that he made Josh Fields look like a slick-fielding third baseman.

I guess Wilson didn't want to leave New York. He had some good moments last year with the Yankees, but he looked finished with the Sox. Moving on....

You go to the Wilson synagogue too?

(Thank you!! I'll be here all week..)

But seriously, Wilson, don't let the door hit ya on the way out.

Wilson: You can't hit, can't run, and can't field. Other than that you're great.

He didn't hurt us as much as Rick White or Jaime Navarro, for example, because they were here a longer time. But yeah you can definetly add him to the roster.

The dude barely played 2 months here. C'mon, we've had much, much worse players than that.

Haha, well played.

Beth Emet, pronounced in modern Hebrew sounds a lot like Betemit.

Then again, there might a shul on Wilson I don't know about...

May you catch on as the starting third baseman of whatever team the Sox play in the World Series this year!

I still can't believe that they traded Swisher for this turd. Jeff Marquez and Jhonny Nunez better turn out because this trade has not worked out well so far.

Um, thanks for the spring training homers?

Maybe he's not entirely to blame for his defensive problems, he could have used a Bettamit :scratch:

Thanks for mashing homers in spring training. You actually became almost as hated as Mike MacDougal in 1/10 the time.

They traded Swisher to get RID of Swisher. I think Nunez will turn out alright.

You'd think a guy who has references to a baseball glove in his first and last name would be a little better defensively.

Yes, The Sox copuld have really used Swisher. Seeing as he hit .151 in May as an every day player.

And the Cardinals wouldnt give up Pujols for Swisher. Damn.

When you trade a piece of dung, why would you not expect a piece of dung in return?
