Well, that's something different

I'm really enjoying watching ESPN scramble as the Red Sox refuse to take the field for this afternoon's Spring Training game against Toronto.

For the quick catch-up, the team is refusing to take the field in Fort Myers and says it won't get on the bus to the airport later today until the coaching, training and equipment staffs are paid for the scheduled trip to Japan.

Jason Varitek is in front of the cameras now and is apologizing to the fans - and promising autographs for those in the stadium - for essentially cancelling the game today as ESPN's broadcasters try to make lemonade with the dead airtime.

At 11:16 a.m., the Sox headed back to the dugout - more later if it's interesting.
