If you thought the Theo Epstein situation wasn’t silly enough already, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that commissioner Bud Selig may act as arbitrator if the Red Sox and Cubs can’t agree on compensation for the former Boston GM.
Selig made the comments last night during an appearance on Sirius XM’s “Mad Dog Radio” with Chris Russo.
”It is a possibility. No question, it is a possibility.”
There were a few optimistic reports out of Chicago yesterday that suggested a resolution was close, but Red Sox owner John Henry said otherwise in comments to the Boston Globe. With Friday essentially ruled out, it now appears that an announcement will either have to wait until the next off-day of the World Series on Tuesday or after the series is completed.
