Nick Swisher is a wimp

I'm very disappointed in Nick Swisher.

Everyone knows that a real man doesn't rush the mound, and then dive at the pitcher's legs when he gets in range.

Swisher is a wimp. A girly-man. A nancy-boy.

What's really unfortunate is that Vicente Padilla looked like he was ready to throw down. I think he was prepared to take out the frustrations of a crappy season on a long-haired, switch-hitting Oakland Athletic. And if Swisher had come in swinging, rather than diving, I think Padilla would have whupped some ass.

It would have made the Nolan Ryan beating of Robin Ventura look like last year's Scott Feldman/Adam Kennedy "slap fight."
