      Looks like Hank isn't the only one who likes to talk to the media.<p>"Theo Epstein, general manager of the Boston Red Sox, called Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina a "bad apple" for complaining about the team's trip to Japan in 2004.<p>The Red Sox open this season against the Oakland A's in Japan. Appearing on Boston radio station WEEI last Friday, Epstein said, "Kevin Brown and Mike Mussina spent the whole time bitching about it ... and by the time the Yankees team got back from the trip they were all using it as a crutch."<p>Told of the comments, Mussina said sarcastically, "Yeah, we used it as an excuse for winning the division."<p>Epstein had been praising his players for their attitude about the trip.<p>"The research that we've done on the Japan trip from the teams that have previously gone," Epstein said, "is one or two bad apples can spoil the lot."<p>Said Mussina: "You need a comment from me about him calling me a bad apple? I don't have one."<p><br>Hey Theo Steinbrenner if you think starting the season in Japan, coming back to play more spring training games and then start the season again is a good idea then thats fine. But maybe its better to shut up and see how it really effects your team beofer you call guys out...

      I was watching a YES program on the new stadium and it's going to have restaurants and everything. Most importantly...more bathrooms.

      So are you saying Mussina and Brown whining about opening in Japan wasn't a bad thing?

      and you think a shorter spring training, followed by a trip to japan, then back for more exhibition games, then more traveling to start the season is just better than staying in florida for those 2 weeks and starting the season normally?

It did take a toll on the Yankees that year. They were flat as hell for all of April.

Matsui,Arod,Jorge,Olerud ect ect ect.<p>Not young players who could be distracted.<br><BR><BR>

Trust me - he'll be on this trip as it's an important event for baseball.<p>Will it be difficult? Probably but remember that tens of thousands of people do the same trip every week - not as athletes of course and sans the chartered jet - and they get through it.
