He may have won the offseason years back, but he is certianly screwing a lot of players this time around.
Greg Holland (Boras client) turned down a $52 million dollar deal over three years to pitch for the Rockies and they instead paid the same to Wade Davis who is now one of the highest paid closers in the game.
It also didn't occur to me that JD martinez is 30 years old. If you're trying to get him over $200 million at that age when the player has only one 40+ homerun season, then you're digging for stats that aren't there. Even $150 million is pushing it with those numbers and yet Martinez is still idle because Boras thinks he can get him more.
It's not that these guys are overpaid (they are, but it's not all that), it's agents like Boras who are screwing everyone in the market. To then have the nerve to take it out on the MLB teams for not ponying up money is outrageous.
Boras is an idiot. He's screwing players. He's screwing the game. Hopefully he finally gets exposed this time around.
Please change topic title from "Boars" to "Boras" (my typo).
