Behold: The Brian Cashman-Theo Epstein Mutual Admiration Society

19 Comments

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.

Right choices like Carl Crawford for seven years and $142 million!  He’s dead-on about the not-popular choices, though. For example, no one likes the John Lackey deal.

Up next: a Cubs-Yankees trade that favors Chicago that causes Red Sox fans to claim vicarious victory over New York.
