According to a variety of reports, Nick Swisher is headed to Cleveland for a dinner with Indians team president Mark Shapiro, which could be a precursor to a deal.

As you know, the Yankees have had no interest in Swisher. They will receive a sandwich pick in the first round when Swisher signs with a new team.

A couple of other items on this Monday afternoon:

• The Yankees still feel confident they can retain Raul Ibañez, but there is no deal yet. They are still finishing language on Ichiro Suzuki's contract.

• There was a report out of Boston that the Yankees might go after Michael Bourn if his price drops. Unless there is a trade, I don't see the Yankees adding another speedy outfieler, especially an expensive one. Anyway, a person with knowledge said they aren't in on Bourn. Same goes for Rafael Soriano, who turned down his option, which would have kept him a Yankee.

QUESTION: Would you want to see Swisher go to Cleveland?
