Never forget: in 2009, Doug Mientkiewicz called Nick Swisher a turd

Delightful to some, insufferable to others (me), Nick Swisher today wears the paper crown of Yankee Old Timer's Game MVP. But nine years ago...














An hour and a half later, a little backpedaling:

Doogie Howser is much more of a turd than Swisher. Just ask the red flops.

If Swisher had had a couple of big hits in the postseason, instead of turding up the joint, he might be a Yankee legend. Like Boone. Instead of the enlarged turd that he is.

I mean the guy has a career OPS+ of 113. He could not in the regular season. But his lifetime postseason slash line reads .165/.277/.297. That stinks. It's a .575 OPS. Explain to me how "Dougie Baseball" was wrong?

And explain to me how he has the yarbles to call himself "Dougie Baseball"!?

What a douche. And a turd. A douche turd, if you will.

I wish this Walker guy was an entertaining, occasionally successful turd like Swisher.

Instead, he's just a run-of-the-mill pile of dung.

Stanton and Sanchez are hopeless. The Master is tired of them. He's taken to predicting how they will strikeout and when they do exactly what he predicts he'll exclaim "How does he not know that's what coming when everyone else does"

Bird is just not talented and shouldn't be on a major league roster.

Considering the number of chances he had, and how he performed, Swisher is perhaps the worst postseason player in major-league history. He capped his long history of October ineffectuality with the Yankees by botching a ball in right that cost us the game in 2012, right after Jeter was carried off the field—then expressed shock that the fans booed him.

A great character, an awful clutch player.

As opposed to much of our current team, which now seems composed of dull, gray awful clutch players.

A turd with grit. A gritty turd. A gritturd.

Well said Alibi, well said.
