"After 10 days of back-and-forth proposals failed to produce a settlement on the matter of compensation, Epstein resigned as executive vice-president and general manager of the Red Sox Friday night and was named president of Baseball Operations for the Cubs.

The idea was that Epstein and Red Sox assistant GM Ben Cherington would continue to work on the compensation issue, but no further talks are scheduled until after Epstein is introduced Tuesday at Wrigley Field and Cherington is named his successor at Fenway.

If Epstein and Cherington can't settle the issue before Nov. 1, commissioner Bud Selig said Sunday night he would intervene."
