FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Red Sox have a split-squad doubleheader today. There's a game in Sarasota against Baltimore and one at home against Miami.
It would have been amusing if the Marlins sent a team of scrubs to JetBlue Park after complaining about the Red Sox not sending enough major leaguers last week. Silly spring training feuds are fun diversions. But according to the Miami reporters, they're sending a representative team.
