Source: 'All parties expect' Theo-to-Cubs

According to a source familiar with the negotiations, compensation talks between the Cubs and Red Sox regarding an agreement to send GM Theo Epstein to Chicago are "progressing" this weekend, and it remains the case that "all parties expect a deal to occur." To date, the conversations between the clubs have taken the shape of a normal negotiation, in which the Sox are trying to maximize the value of their asset (Epstein) while the Cubs are seeking to part with as little as possible. Despite a report that the negotiations have been "increasingly contentious," the source suggested that the conversations between the two clubs remains civil and respectful.

Rangers earn second straight WS berth

The Texas Rangers are going to the World Series for a second straight season, beating the Tigers, 15-5, in Game 6 of the teams' best-of-seven American League Championship Series.

Leading the way for the Rangers was outfielder Nelson Cruz, who set a postseason record with his sixth home run of the series. Texas also got two, two-run doubles from Michael Young in the hosts' nine-run third inning. Young added a homer in the Texas rout, collecting five RBI. The AL champs finished the clinching game with 17 hits.

The Rangers, who become the first repeat AL champ in a decade, will begin World Series play Wednesday against either St. Louis or Milwaukee. 

Earning the win in relief for the Rangers was Alexi Ogando, who allowed just one hit while pitching the sixth and seventh innings. Detroit starter Max Scherzer lasted just 2 1/3 innings, giving up six runs while walking four.

Seguin, Thomas lift B's in shootout
By: DJ Bean

Tim Thomas and Tyler Seguin came up big for the Bruins Saturday in Chicago as they defeated the Blackhawks, 3-2, in a shootout.

The Bruins never led in the game, but they broke their two-game losing streak with the help of Seguin, who's been big for them all season, and Nathan Horton, who had taken a while to get going on the young season.

Seguin scored the Bruins' lone shootout goal on Corey Crawford, with Thomas stopping Janathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp. 

Horton tied the game at 7:56 of the third period to give the Bruins late life and momentum, with the Bruins' other tally coming in the form of a shorthanded Chris Kelly Tally. The Blackhawks got their scoring from Bryan Bickell and Kane.

The win was the 300th of Bruins coach Claude Julien's career. The 2-3-0 Bruins will return to Boston, where they will face the Hurricanes Tuesday.

Report: Sox not getting Jackson from Cubs

According to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com (via twitter), outfield prospect Brett Jackson is not part of the potential compensation package that the Red Sox will receive from the Cubs in exchange for releasing general manager Theo Epstein from the last year of his contract. Asked whether she knew what the Sox wanted in exchange for Epstein, Muskat said, "No. But do know #Cubs Brett Jackson is not in the package."

Jackson, 23, a first-round pick in the 2009 draft, split last season between Double-A Tennessee (where he hit .256 with a .373 OBP, .443 slugging mark and .816 OPS in 67 games) and Triple-A Iowa (where he hit .297/.388/.551/.939). The left-handed hitting Jackson had a combined 20 homers and 21 steals between the two levels.

The Sox and Cubs had struggled to find common ground in the early stages of the negotiations between the clubs, with the Cubs offering...
