While most Yankees fans are scratching their heads, I'm rejoicing. Brian Cashman signed Chris Carter without having an everyday spot to put him, but that's no reason to question the thought process behind this move. Chris Carter led the NL last year in homeruns, so getting him for a mere $3 Mil, which is pocket change for the Yankees, was a steal for the Yankees. Carter won't be an everyday player, with the acquisition of Matt Holliday earlier this offseason, and overcrowded outfield the DH spot is probably going to be filled by Holliday. Greg Bird, our young stud first basemen who missed all of last season will take over Teixeira's spot this season as long as he can produce at the clip he did when he was first called up 2 seasons ago. Carter is going to be fill in guy, when Bird needs a day off Carter will play, or when one of our injury prone outfielders go down he will be able to step right in, and fill the void with his powerful bat. Carter isn't going to hit for a high average, he'll hit .220 at best, but he's capable of hitting one out of the ballpark on any swing. At Yankee stadium all he'll need to do is hit pop ups and they'll find their way over the fence. Having too many bats is a good problem to have, I'm not exactly sure how he'll fit into the lineup, maybe the Yankees will trade away some pieces, but I'm sure Cashman has a plan. Cashman has been making all the right moves lately, so I've grown to not doubt his decisions. Building for the future while continuing to stay competitive is not an easy thing to do, as a matter a fact it's nearly impossible, yet somehow Cashman has managed to accomplish it. Welcome aboard Chris Carter, excited to watch you mash homeruns this season.
