Selig may step in on Sox-Cubs impasse

ST. LOUIS – Commissioner Bud Selig said he may have to step in to solve the Cubs-Red Sox impasse on compensation for Theo Epstein.

Selig told Sirius XM radio hoist Chris Russo about stepping in, ”It is a possibility. No question, it is a possibility.”

Selig also commented on Boston’s Animal House: “Well, the only thing I’ll say, you know that I’m very concerned about our image. I do believe our players are role models. So when stories like that emerge you must understand I’m not very happy.”

Russo asked Selig whether he called the Red Sox to ask what was going on.

“No, I’m going to wait until all this other stuff is done and it’ll be up to the general manager and the new manager to solve that immediately.”
