Red Sox, Cubs give Selig arguments on Epstein

February 13, 2012

Boston and the Cubs have submitted written arguments to baseball Commissioner Bud Selig on what compensation the Red Sox should receive for allowing Theo Epstein to leave for Chicago.

Epstein quit as Boston's general manager in October to become the Cubs' president of baseball operations, and the teams were unable to reach an agreement by themselves on compensation.

Selig has not given any timetable for a decision.

The submission of arguments was first reported Monday by CBS. Cubs spokesman Peter Chase and Red Sox spokeswoman Pam Ganley said their teams had no comment.
