BOSTON (CBS) – The ball is now in Bud Selig’s court as to what the Red Sox get from the Cubs for general manager Theo Epstein.

After a three-and-a-half month standstill, multiple sources told the Chicago Sun-Times that the Cubs and Red Sox have requested the compensation be resolved by the commissioner.

The move was reportedly initiated by Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino late last month, one source told the Sun-Times.

Both sides have been struggling to find a common ground for compensation since the Cubs hired Epstein, who had one year remaining on his deal with the Red Sox, in October. Selig had to intervene in order for the teams to formally announce the deal, and the commissioner originally set a November 1 deadline for compensation before he would intervene.

It’s unclear how long Selig will take to solve the issue, and it’s also unclear what the Sox will get in return.
