I always have to laugh when I hear people talk about the tough New York sports media. You mean the ones who are Brian Cashman's spin doctors, who will carry his water for whatever ridiculous move he makes? Even now claiming that the Vernon Wells deal is somehow smart? Spare me.Look at the morning papers' headlines and tell me that the mainstream media has any common sense when it comes to the state of the Yankees:The New York Post claims: "Deal for Wells makes $ense for Yankees," while the New York Daily News sez that "Vernon Wells, despite his hefty contract, could actually help Yankees get under luxury tax threshold."The basic claim from Cashman, happily spun by the NYC media, is that trading for Wells is somehow a smart, financially savvy move. This, even though he will 1) cost the Yankees $13 million for a player with below-replacement level value over the past two years, 2) will also cost the Yankees not one but two players in the trade, 3) will cost them flexibility this year....
