Jared Wickerham

Yes, Boston's owner has struck again.

John W. Henry is a pretty important person. He owns not just the Red Sox, but also Liverpool FC and the Boston Globe.

Woah, now.

John Henry, billionaire, owner of the Boston Red Sox, just laid down the law on the Marlins. Via Twitter.

(For those not up-to-date with the "controversy", Henry is responding to this bit of silliness from Miami.)
