Scott Boras: Worst person in baseball?


Winning_Season

Recommended Posts

Watching baseball tonight today and they were talking about the whole Manny mess. Which got me thinking, can you name one positive thing that Scott Boras has brought to the game of baseball?

Clients that he represents tend to exclusively sign for the most money possible (Tex) not play hard when they dont feel like it (Manny) or get caught juicing (A-Rod). Mainly it seems like Boras and all the players represent only play for themselves and their $$$$

Can anyone tell me one thing that wouldn't be better in baseball if Scott Boras would just dissapear off the face of the earth?

It's simple, clients go to Boras because they want the most money, it's his job to get it for them. For some players they don't care about money first so they make the choice on whether or not to use him. Hate the players if you want to hate anyone, but even then it's unfair to judge if you've never been in their shoes. When factoring the odds to play at this level if you have the choice to play for a winner and make a ton of money, do you choose the opposite?? He shouldn't be responsible for Manny's behavioral problems or ARod's drug choices, they're grown men.

To make a literary reference, if there was a baseball hell with a frozen Satan at the very bottom, it's three mouths would hold Bud Selig, Donald Fehr and Scott Boras.

The puppet commissioner, the unthinking union leader, and the great deceiver.

Rachel Phelps should probably be in there too.

Horace Greely once said it this way:

"Fame is a vapor,fortune takes wings. the only thing that endures is character".

Jeremy Guthrie is a man of great character.And that is why he will always be a very rich man. And Im not talking about money.

That's a great quote.
