Theo Deal Close; Cabin, Pro File

Snow/Edes in the Globe:
Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein and president/CEO Larry Lucchino met multiple times yesterday, and by last night there was every indication an agreement will be reached that will keep Epstein as GM for the next three years. A formal announcement could come today. ...

Epstein and the Sox were believed to be only $300,000 apart earlier in the week. On Tuesday, Lucchino offered Epstein $1.2 million per year for three years, upping the club's initial offer of $850,000 per season. Epstein, whose contract expires Monday, is believed to have made $350,000 this season and desires a bump to $1.5 million per year.
Also, Kevin Millar and Bill Mueller filed for free agency.

A little more time to keep the best makes a lot of sense.

"Git 'er done"!
