Early last week the Miami Marlins were outraged with the Boston Red Sox because of the non-star studded lineup that the defending world champions brought to their Grapefruit League match up. The Marlins were upset calling it a “gross violation” and contemplated filing a complaint with the MLB home office, which they did.
Then came the single blast back at the Marlins from Boston Red Sox owner John Henry who took to Twitter to say the following:
They should apologize for their regular season lineup.— John W. Henry (@John_W_Henry) March 8, 2014
WEEI in Boston is reporting the Red Sox were fined after the team fielded a lineup against the Marlins in Jupiter, Fla., on Thursday that failed to meet MLB guidelines for the participation of lineup regulars.
Henry does have a past with the Marlins as he was the majority owner of the franchise from 1999 till 2002. During Henry's term as owner of the Marlins the team was a combined 216-266 with two changes at manager and no playoff appearances.
