Nick Swisher shines on "How I Met Your Mother"

Nick SwisherEric McCandless/Fox Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher is a ladies' man on Monday's episode of "How I Met Your Mother".

Nick Swisher just gave us another reason to dislike the New York Yankees.

They'll snake your girl.

That's exactly what the Yanks outfielder will do -- unwittingly, anyway -- Monday night on "How I Met Your Mother." In the episode airing on CBS, Barney's (Neil Patrick Harris) pursuit of "the perfect week" -- seven girls in seven days -- is disrupted when Swisher, playing himself at a New York City bar, catches the eye of Barney's latest prey.

The gang runs interference to help Barney preserve his streak, but it's a tall order.

In the 2-1-2, a Yankee can have any lady he desires, right?

"That's a myth," said Swisher, who is dating Gossip Girl's Joanna Garcia. "We're normal, man. The only difference between us and everybody else is we work at Yankee Stadium, and our job just happens to be on TV. We put our pants on one leg at a time, too. The same rules apply to everybody."

Does Nick Swisher ever get shot down?

"Oh, yeah. Absolutely!"

A losing record?

"No," he laughed. "I don't have a losing record."
