Alex Speier of WEEI reports Epstein and Cashman are intrigued to talk trade. Speier says "Epstein and Cashman almost never discussed trades when they were general managers of heated rivals. Epstein recalled just one instance. After he become GM in 2002, while talking to the Yankees GM in passing, he suggested they exchange Sox corner infielder Shea Hillenbrand (one of the least disciplined hitters in the game) for Yankees first baseman Nick Johnson (one of the most patient hitters in baseball)." “It was kind of half-joking, half-begging,” Epstein suggested the proposal.
