This is really interesting. The Sox are considering boycotting the upcoming trip to Japan if the team's support personnel (coaches, trainers, equipment staff) don't receive compensation that was allegedly promised them as part of the travel package.
I love this. It shows both that the team is united and that they recognize the importance and value of the people that don't get their names in the newspapers every day (and, not for nothing, don't make millions of dollars for entertaining us). I really think the Sox will be getting on that plane, but not before MLB is forced to do the right thing.
Somewhere, Hank Steinbrenner quietly fumes.
