For years, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman just couldn't win.
Despite all the success the Yankees have had, most critics have stated it is because of the deep pockets of ownership.
People are quick to point out all the busts Cashman has signed over the years, just handing out big contract after big contract.
It is only fair to give credit when credit is due. Cashman hasn't signed a major free agent in years.
He has avoided the traps on players like Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke, focusing on re-signing his own players and attempting to rebuild through the draft.
Last offseason, just about every move Cashman made paid off as he attempted to fill several holes due to injuries and free agent departures.
Along with Wells, Travis Hafner and Lyle Overbay have been keys to the Yankees' offense early on.
There is no telling whether that production will continue all season and I don't expect it to, but the Yankees will get healthier and for now, they have done their job better than expected.
