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."
