No Progress In Theo Epstein Compensation Talks

The Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs are still at ends over potential compensation for general manager Theo Epstein, according to the Boston Globe. While the discussion was handed over the commissioner’s office last month, no decision has been made.

“It’s just a disagreement. There was an expectation when Theo left that the Red Sox would receive significant compensation for allowing the Cubs to hire him and we haven’t been able to agree on what ‘significant compensation’ means,”Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said of the situation.

When asked if there was a resolution in sight,  Cubs’ general manager Theo Epstein said, “Seems like it should be coming to an end sometime soon."

Epstein became the general manager for the Red Sox in 2002, and is generally credited with having assembled the rosters of Boston’s World Series champion teams in 2004 and 2007.

The Red Sox failed to make the playoffs in 2011 despite what was perceived as massive roster improvement during the previous winter. After a late season collapse, Epstein, manager Terry Francona, and closer Jonathan Papelbon all left Boston.
