Miami Marlins team executives were "outraged" Thursday over the lineup the Boston Red Sox fielded in a spring training game between the clubs. The Marlins implemented "super premium" pricing for the Grapefruit League matchup with the defending World Series champs, yet the Red Sox sent almost no regulars. Seven of Boston's nine position players didn't have any major league plate appearances, and the Marlins planned on contacting MLB, according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun-Sentinel

On Saturday, Red Sox owner John Henry fired back on Twitter, saying, "They should apologize for their regular season lineup."

In 2013, the Marlins won 62 games, second-fewest in baseball. This year's team will feature two infielders who were out of MLB last season in Rafael Furcal and Casey McGehee. Last year, Miami had the second-lowest payroll in baseball, at just over $36 million, while the Red Sox had the fourth-highest at $150 million.
