It appears the strained relationship between the Boston Red Sox and Miami Marlins has taken a new turn, this after Boston owner John Henry blasted the South Florida franchise on Twitter recently.

In case you missed it, the Marlins were 'outraged' on Thursday when the Red Sox sent a team full of minor league talent to face the Marlins in a Spring Training contest.

This may not have normally been much of an issue, but the Marlins were touting the game as an opportunity for their fans to watch the 'World Series Champions' and were charging hefty prices to do so.

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington apologized to the Marlins during the game, but Henry (who owned the Marlins in some capacity from 1992 to 2002) wasn't feeling as empathetic, suggesting Miami apologize for fielding their regular season roster.
