Person familiar with talks tells AP Cubs, Red Sox talking compensation for Epstein
CHICAGO (AP) ' A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cubs are still talking with the Boston Red Sox about compensation in a deal to bring general manager Theo Epstein to Chicago.
The talks continued Friday, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the negotiations are confidential.
Epstein has agreed to a deal with the Cubs and would leave Boston with a year remaining on his contract, the person said earlier this week. The deal is reportedly for five years.
Epstein is expected to have a bigger role with the Cubs.
