Red Sox players threaten to pull out of Japan trip
by Bob Timmermann
The Boston Red Sox players have not taken the field yet for their Grapefruit League game against Toronto and are threatening not to go to Japan unless coaches and other staff receive extra payments for the trip. There is also a debate over whether families could come along the trip, which would also involve a stop in Los Angeles upon returning from Tokyo.
ESPN is supposed to televise the game today from Fort Myers.
