Swisher has had enough Lee talk

Nick Swisher is done talking about Cliff Lee, and the Yankees outfeilder is done listening to other people talk about the Rangers ace.

Swisher has lashed out several times in the past week when the subject of Lee arose in the Yankees clubhouse. Prior to Game 3, an ESPNNewYork.com reporter reported hearing Swisher say, "If one more guy asks me about Cliff Lee, I'm gonna punch him right in the [expletive] mouth.''

On Thursday, Swisher overheard reporters talking and said, before storming off, "You guys are talking about Cliff Lee? Who cares? I can't wait to hit against his [behind]."

Swisher certainly experienced some frustration the last time he hit against Lee's posterior. In Game 3 he went 0-for-4, including an 11-pitch at-bat that ended with a strikeout.

We probably haven't heard the last of this -- especially if these two end up teammates next year.

I guess 200 million doesn't buy much anymore eh? Looks like the reality show the Lottery changed my life....for the worse! If I hear one more punk writer say no one will watch the WS cause the Yankees aren't there I'm screaming I was pulling for any team but the Yankees!

Hate the Yanks, luv Swisher for his fire. This is what the New York media does. people say its tough to play in New York. Of course its tough to go back into the high school mentality and talk to uninformed idoits without any appreciation for how difficult professional sports are.

Looks like the only thing Nick needs to worry about is his tee time!
