  1. I love all these media writers highlighting Scott Boras being the super agent for all these top name players. Boras does not have the leverage like most these stupid writers think. He couldn’t find a market for JD Martinez two years ago, and last year he couldn’t get the 9 figure salaray for Dallas Keuchel, who wasn’t even signed unti June. Same thing with Eric Hosmer, who got a lot less than Boras asked for on the open market. Boras is not this god like power figure people perceive him as. In fact, Boras had been out-negotiated the past several years by many GMs and Presidents. And he’s just a one man show. Anyone want to compare Boras to a real super power agent behemoth, just look at WME (Endeavor) and CAA, Boras is nothing to those guys.
