Cubs / Red Sox Epstein Compensation Deal Close

10:17 AM ET: The decision on how to compensate the Boston Red Sox for losing Theo Epstein to the Chicago Cubs is close, according to Gordon Edes of ESPN. Edes suggests the deal will include "one quality minor leaguer." The definition of "quality" is at the heart of who is sent over.
