The hold up is because the Red Sox want us to take back SoSH and Ricketts refuses...

Oh man, that would just kill TT. I hope it's not true for his sake.

I'm gonna guess Starling Peralta and Dallas Beeler.

We need 24/7 suicide watches for TT if that ever gets even rumored.

As a secondary pick, I'm guessing Rhee and Rosscup.

I'd be quite surprised if we gave up two arms slated for the AA rotation as of now. Pitching prospects get over-valued in trades. Not impossible, but I have my doubts that the Cubs would do that.

If it's two A-ish level prospects, I'll guess ... Aaron Kurcz (pen arm that could be up in 2012 so could offer some help) and uh ... one of the high-ceiling arms perhaps, perhaps a Starling Peralta.

I requested a ban from all the non-baseball threads because I feel like it's time to have real baseball discussions again. That should get us at least some amount of bum.

Lackey getting TJS should support that the Red Sox are full of [expletive] in the compensation negotiation.

Quote:
According to WEEI, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is likely to have to step in and determine compensation headed to the Red Sox in exchange for Theo Epstein's defection to the Cubs.
"I wouldn't be surprised if it goes to the commissioner," said the website's source. Epstein, the new president of baseball operations in Chicago, who initially was on the outside looking in during negotiations, can now negotiate directly with new Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington. That change could result in another schism that requires an arbiter to determine compensation. Epstein insists the Red Sox won't be receiving a bounty. "I can't get into the exact stipulations [of the understanding between the clubs]," Epstein said. "[But] it's been important to me that the Red Sox baseball operations has continuity, and it's important to me that Ben succeeds and that the Red Sox succeed. While there may be a fit at some point for somebody who may be blocked over with the Red Sox to come to the Cubs, there's not going to be any kind of raid."

And now almost 3 months later, it finally looks like Selig will indeed settle the compensation for Theo Epstein.

According to Gordon Wittenmyer at the Sun-Times...

Quote:
The compensation headache over Theo Epstein’s move from the Boston Red Sox to the Cubs is officially Bud Selig’s problem, turning a minor embarrassment for the Cubs into a potential precedent-setting action for Major League Baseball.

Multiple sources told the Sun-Times that the Cubs and Red Sox have requested that their nearly three-month stalemate be resolved by the commissioner, a move apparently initiated by Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino late last month, one source said.

So if the Cubs and Red Sox don't win a world series for the next 50+ years will the media come up with The Curse To Amicably Word Out Compensation Without the Commisioner Stepping In?

Still, these ass holes can't still be asking for McNutt or Jackson can they? If they were smart, they would have taken what they could get before 2 of the best took over the negotiations for our side.
