Post-Flight: Wait, where's Dave Magadan's fucking money?
Lightning struck? Fuck you, pay them. Slow business? Fuck you, pay them. Telling your rival not to play so hard because you pay revenue sharing? Fuck you, Hank, play ball.
Boston is playing ball, having won a short, stupid standoff after a unique threat to stay home and let two losses drop into their record (and millions of dollars in lost revenue and publicity in the Japanese market drop from MLB's coffers). Strange episode, that one, but Bud Selig isn't exactly Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, so the conclusion was predictable. Onto the show.
