Again, not much has changed about Swisher's stats have changed besides the number of hits he gets. His power is also down. But 154 ABs is nothing - hitters hit terribly over samples like that all the time. Remember the year Wade Boggs hit .260 and the Red Sox let him go? There's entire seasons where a player's deviation from his career numbers has been bigger than Swisher's from his.
The guy is a .169 hitter lifetime in the playoffs, in 46 GP and 154 AB...seems to be too big a sample to attribute all of it to hitting into bad luck. He has yet to show why anyone should have confidence in him come playoff time, but the same thing was said about ARod as a Yankee through up until 2009, so I can't entirely rule out Swisher having a big playoff out of nowhere (if he gets there).
And yeah, I think 'the knack' definitely exists...not in black-and-white form, but enough that the guys that don't seem to have it have a way of sticking out.

Has anyone seen the tv show "ink master"? I think an awesome challenge would be for them to design hockey masks
That's true that would be fun to see what they could do with them. It'd be like the challenge when they painted Navarro's guitars
