There was something about the unsigned e-mail that bothered Brian Cashman -- the unusually sarcastic note hit a nerve when it told the Yankees' general manager "You're no Theo Epstein."The e-mail didn't stop there: It went on to repeat a familiar second guess in New York this summer, that Cashman was paying the price for signing Andy Pettitte when he could've traded for Johan Santana.
