Remember when Boston GM Theo Epstein said how his team was together on going to Japan and wouldn’t complain about it? Yeah, not so much.
Boston’s players are all up in arms over their coaches not getting paid extra and may boycott today’s game in Fort Myers. Thanks for coming to down to Florida to see us play!
So let’s review. The Yankees are charitable men of honor who help their fellow man in a time of need. The Sox are a greedy disgrace to the game.
UPDATE, 1:30 p.m.: Oh, thank goodness. The situation has been settled.
UPDATE, 3:12 p.m.: Yankees player rep Mike Mussina said that when the Yankees went to Japan, they were given a pool of money to distribute how they see fit. The players voted to give equal shares to the coaches and support staff who were making the trip.
Now whether the Red Sox forgot to include the coaches or not, I have no idea. But obviously something got fouled up.
Meanwhile, thanks to all the Red Sox fans who had somebody write me nasty e-mails on their behalf. Good stuff.
