08:10 AM ET 10.21 | In the event you believe the assumed impasse on compensation for Theo Epstein is getting out of hand, you may have a friend in Commissioner Bud Selig. 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."

Why is this situation any different than that others Bud has handled? Normally there is a time limit in place for these time of negociations. Also Theo should not be in contact with the Cubs until this is settled. Not sure how MLB is letting Theo talk to Hoyer on the Cubs behalf when he still works for the Sox.

Khaday Caught By Yankee Fan along with other rebels wearing Boston Bruins T Shirts



One of Atro's buddies from the bleachers......

While Khadafy was dragged out to face long-delayed justice, al-Bibi was hoisted on the shoulders of his joyous countrymen, where he showed off the gold-plated pistol he'd stripped off the despot.

How al-Bibi came to be wearing a New York Yankees hat in a country where baseball is not played was not clear, but the Bombers weren't the only U.S. pro sports team whose gear found its way into the rebel ranks.


One of the rebels who took Khadafy down was seen sporting Boston Bruins T-shirt.

Hockey is also a non-existent sport in this desert land, although Khadafy's government was building a luxury development in Tripoli that included an ice rink when the revolution broke out.

Yankees and Bruins gear can be found in many third world countries where American sports aren't played thanks to World Vision.

The charity gets unwanted shirts and caps from Major League Baseball, the NFL and NHL and then sends them off to countries where clothes are scarce - and the recipients can't afford to be picky.

For example, in 2008 World Vision doled out $2 million worth of New England Patriots championship T-shirts to poor people in Nicaragua, Romania and other countries.

That year, the New York Giants shocked the previously undefeated Brady Bunch and won the Super Bowl.
