According to the Associated Press, the Red Sox and Cubs have submitted written arguments to commissioner Bud Selig in regard to compensation for Theo Epstein.
The Red Sox say they were promised “significant compensation” after Epstein stepped down as general manager nearly four months ago in order to become the Cubs’ president of baseball operations, but the two sides never appeared all that interested in negotiating. And that makes sense given the awkwardness for all involved.
Selig has not provided a timeline for a final decision and considering that we still don’t even know what the playoff format will be this season, he presumably has more pressing matters on his plate at the moment.
