1/18 Compensation matters

It appears Bud Selig will need to settle the dispute between the Cubs and Red Sox regarding compensation for Theo Epstein. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Cubs and Red Sox have asked Major League Baseball’s commissioner to resolve the matter. The Red Sox say they were promised “valuable compensation” in exchange for letting Epstein leave with one year remaining on his contract in Boston. Epstein took over the Cubs as president of baseball operations in late October.

When the Cubs hired Andy MacPhail from the Twins in 1994, the Cubs sent Class A pitcher Hector Trinidad to the Twins as compensation. Trinidad never did reach the big leagues. The Red Sox apparently want more than a Class A pitcher. Epstein received a five-year, $18.5 million contract from the Cubs.
