We’ve all seen players feud.
It’s pretty interesting to see a couple owners get mad at each other.
Last week, the Marlins were upset that the Red Sox sent the equivalent of a Triple-A roster to a spring game. Only two Boston starters in that spring game had any regular-season experience.
The Marlins were ticked because they charged a premium for the game, meaning it cost fans more to see the Red Sox than it would, say, some other team.
How mad were the Marlins? ‘Outraged’ was the term reported.
They also planned to contact MLB about a rule violation for spring games that said teams were supposed to have a lineup with at least four regulars or regulars competing for playing time.
After the hubbub, Red Sox owner John W. Henry got into the act.
Of course, he went to Twitter (@John_W_Henry) to take a nice shot at the Marlins, who fielded a team with a payroll of around $36 million last year.
They should apologize for their regular season lineup.
Yeah. That’s what I’m talking about — a nice owner’s dust-up.
Henry’s right, by the way, the Marlins were a joke last year.
Maybe they can settle the score in the World Series?
