If they're that concerned, they should front the money to the coaches and then chase MLB to get reimbursed. But it's wrong to dismiss this as not a big deal because these are some fat cats who don't care about forty grand. I'd be pretty ticked if I was promised a $40,000 bonus months ago and then told, "You know what; that's not coming."
This is the first thing I thought of. Let the lawyers figure it out. If the Red Sox org signed an agreement that left out all these things that they were promised, isn't it their fault (the FO)?
If there is no written agreement, there must be records of meetings and other communications.
I have a feeling the Sox are right, but I don't think they are doing the right thing.
Be excellent to each other.
