    Yankees right fielder Nick Swisher wants to face Cliff Lee in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series, but he is sick of talking about him. Swisher cannot stand hearing another question asked about Lee.

    With the Yankees facing Texas Rangers starter Colby Lewis in Game 6, Swisher did not take kindly to a reporter asking teammates a couple lockers down about Lee.

    “You guys are talking about Cliff Lee?” said Swisher out loud in a room full of reporters. “[Expletive], who cares?”

    As he walked off, Swisher said, “I can’t wait to hit against his [behind].”

    Later, when asked about saying this out loud with reporters present, Swisher cut off a question when the words “Cliff Lee” were uttered.

    “I’m not talking about Cliff Lee,” Swisher said. “I don’t give a [expletive].”

    Swishalicious being Swishalicious?

    Somehow, I don’t think Paul O’Neill ever went on the record like this when talking about Pedro Martnez…

      Can’t say I blame him one bit. The Yankees should only worry about hitting Colby Lewis. Forget Cliff Lee.

      I’m with Swish. F* him and the horse he rode in on. I hope we win tonight so that we can paste their best guy in game 7.

      @ MJ Recanati: I’m sick of hearing about Cliff Lee, too. Good for Swish!

      I’m also sick of the media saying Lee’s full name, the way they do Brett Favre. Enough already.

      They shouldn’t even be discussing Lee; gotta get thru Lewis first. While I admire Swish’s confidence, talk is cheap, and Lee has owned the Yankees esp in postseason. Not even close.
      As for full nsme pronounciation, he has single sylable first and last name. Common to say both (Jet Li, Jack Black, Ron Paul, Bob Hope, etc).

      Love the attitude, but plowboys shouldn’t pull against #1 guns.
