Brian Cashman and Theo Epstein were at the same charity event on Tuesday night and they each talked about how great it is that they’re not competing head-to-head in the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry anymore. Why? Each of them are just too awesome for the other to handle!
“I was never able to totally relax because I felt like he was always lurking,” Epstein said. “He had a great sense of the marketplace.”
You know, like when he deftly assessed the marketplace for overused setup men and gave Rafael Soriano three-years and $35 million! What say you, Brian?
“I found the Red Sox were constantly making the right choice, not the popular choice,” Cashman said.
Up next: a Cubs-Yankees trade that favors Chicago that causes Red Sox fans to claim vicarious victory over New York.
