There is only one reason Wieters should be sent down

Recommended Posts

Scott Boras will be doing what his client wants him to do. Scott boras was aloso going to get manny a 4 year 100 million dollar contract, wasn't he?

Boras gets what he wants more often than not. Citing one example of something that didn't happen isn't enough evidence to say other wise.

We aren't competing this year, so wasting a year of service time now instead of saving it for 2015, when we are more likely to compete, is pointless.

You can say we can give him all the money in the world, but money is still a major factor.

That's not true.

Scott Boras doesn't do extensions. It has nothing to do with our organization.

Scott Boras isn't the guy playing for our team.

He's the guy who is paid by the guy playing for our team to do what the guy playing for our team wants him to do.

If WIETERS wants an extension, Boras can do nothing except negotiate what Wieters wants.

That is something that far too many people ignore in all of this discussion.

And that is if they really think he is not ready.

It makes no since to hold him back because of service time. If has is 3/4 as good as everyone thinks he is, we will try to sign him to a long tern lucrative contract before the year is over. His service time concern will never be a factor.

You know, I was just thinking that what we really needed was a thread on this topic, since we've never discussed it before.

Maybe you can start a thread on whether we should have drafted Justin Smoak instead of Brian Matusz. That would be interesting to discuss.

Which of Boras's star clients have signed pre-FA extensions?

Not trying to be a ball buster, I just honestly can't think of one off the top of my head.

You have this backwards, Scott Boras' clients do what Scott Boras wants them to do.

They will all follow him blindly now, just like Manny did. He now has a major chink in his armor. The Guy is a business man If his client is offered the right contract he will advise him to take it.

Because it is the right thng to do. IMO. Besides he will be up in Baltimore by mid to late April or May.

Except that he'll refuse...

Why would Wieters sign a deal 3/4 years into his contract when he hired Scott Boras as an agent?

Sorry I have never read a thread dedicated to this.

Damn I am the first person ever to bring up a subject twice. Just don't respond and the thread will fall off.

It has also been thought that if the only reason we send him down s beacuse of service time Boras will make us pay for that move.
