Correct with the age thing.
However, Swisher was a guy who had one very good season, and it was nearly a decade before the Tribe picked him up with one or two other modest seasons. Also, he only hit (I believe) 24 HR's as a left hand hitter in the friendliest park in MLB for a lefty - New York - his final season there, which is not good for a supposed left hand power hitter in that park. His wheels were already gone and was a career .240 with a penchant to strike out as often as he put the ball in play and serious defensive liability, who notoriously disappeared in post seasons. It was a bad deal the day it was signed. EE is none of that. EE is down right clutch (see his walk-off HR to clinch TOR wildcard win and his series digits vs Texas in ALDS).
This is huge.
