Cubs insist Theo compensation deal is over, despite Boston Herald report that Red Sox are "weighing options" cuz Carp's elbow.

Am I the only one who thinks the Cubs (ie, Theo and Jed) are being dicks about this? The Sox seemed to go out of their way to let Theo go where he wanted and when. They didn't have to let him go at all, much less before they had a compensation agreement worked out. Now, after months of refusing to even acknowledge that compensation was appropriate (because, as Theo said "it was just a promotion
"), it turns out that the guy they sent over in the deal is damaged goods. Who knows how it all actually went down behind closed doors, but the defiant, indignant way the Cubs have handled this whole thing from the beginning just doesn't really sit right with me. And while the medicals may have told a very different story back in 2003, it does seem very much at odds with the approach the Sox took during the Sanchez-Lyon deal.
