For longtime rivals, Brian Cashman and Theo Epstein have always seemed to have a friendly respect for one another, and yesterday they spoke together at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut.

Tyler Kepner used the occasion to take a look at the relationship between Cashman and Epstein.

Cashman: “The best compliment you can give is when you start studying your opponent. We actually took a lot of different things that (the Red Sox) were doing and have acclimated into our business.”

Epstein: “We tried to focus on just executing our strategy and building our organization the way we wanted to. We got some rewards from that. But I was never able to totally relax, because I felt like (Cashman) was always lurking.”

As Kepner points out: You have to wonder how long it will be before Cashman and Epstein finally make a trade with one another now that Epstein is the general manager of the Cubs, and the former Cubs GM Jim Hendry is a Cashman assistant with the Yankees.
