According to Gene Orza, chief operating officer of the baseball players' union, baseball officials have provided the union with a draft 2008 schedule that would have the Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics open the season in Tokyo, followed by both teams returning to the USA for a series in Oakland. Baseball has been trying for months to finalize a plan to get the Red Sox, with their Japanese pitchers Daisuke Matsuzaka and Hideki Okajima, to open the season at the Tokyo Dome. It's not a done deal yet, but the A's seem to be in favor of participating. My question is, which team's fans will be losing out on a home game? -- Joe Guckin
