There is growing optimism on the side of the Red Sox that a deal could soon be struck with the Cubs regarding compensation for Theo Epstein.

Nothing is final yet according to team sources but the sides are getting closer.

MLB officials said commissioner Bud Selig is prepared to step in and mediate the issue if needed but has not yet inserted himself into the talks. If the teams do not announce a deal today, they would have to wait until Tuesday.

It has been 10 days since Epstein agreed on a five-year, $18.5 million deal to run baseball operations for the Cubs.
