It appears that there is a dispute about coaches and other non players getting paid to participate in the Japan Major League opening day festivities. The red sox have already held a one day strike boycotting their last spring training game today.

Major league baseball is of course capable of retracting promises made to both the A's and BoSox to be a part of this trip. I wonder if the A's will follow suit or be MLB's lackey boys.
It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
