The Boston Red Sox won't be getting starting pitcher Matt Garza in exchange for general manager Theo Epstein's services in the Windy City.  Major League sources reported that the BoSox initially wanted the Cubs starter to be included as compensation for Epstein, but the Northsiders quickly refused.  Last week, Epstein and the Cubs agreed in principle to a five-year deal worth close to $20-million.  The two teams have now been discussing minor leaguers as compensation.  The MLB prohibits major announcements during the World Series, which has led to speculation that an agreement could be reached as soon as Tuesday since the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers start their bid to be the best on Wednesday.
