While Boras did lose out on his hope for 4 years/+40m, his client still did well.
Lol terrible signing. Who were they even bidding against? Huuuuuge overpay.
Great team on the field though, can't argue that.
The tweeter has more tweets and people he's following then followers....
Red flags went up for me as well
Hector Gomez is reporting that the signing is real.
2 years, $28M. Yankees get the Nats pick. Better pray Mariano Rivera doesn't turn into Trevor Hoffman(when he hit 42/43).
Now Kyle Lohse and Michael Bourn are still waiting for jobs--and so his former Jay Kelly Johnson.
This guy is reporting it too: https://twitter.com/hgomez27
He's not that legit either, but seems to at least be a member of the media.
Soriano is good but with Clippard and Storen and the rest of that BP why would they want to spend all that money PLUS a draft pick on Soriano ???
You just don't know how Boras works though . He may have made a deal with them that he would allow Harper to sign a contract unlike his usual MO . He needs to save face .
Great move in my opinion. No such thing as too good of a bullpen.
The draft pick they lost was a late first rounder, hardly an impactful pick.
The money is lots but hey that's the owners problem
top-31 pick is a good pick bro..
Overpaid, just overpaid
Odds that the 25-30 pick ends up being better than Soriano are pretty low.
This is a team than can win the WS, why not go for it?
Boras is an absolute stud. The ultimate alpha male. This guy needs to be studied in business classes for eternity.
Just got a decent reliever around 250K per inning
JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE
Just as an example, let’s take the 11th pick in the draft since the turn of the century. This is the best possible pick that can be surrendered as compensation for signing a free agent. From 2000 to 2012, those picks have been:
2000: Dave Krynzel2001: Kenny Baugh2002: Jeremy Hermida2003: Michael Aubrey2004: Neil Walker2005: Andrew McCutchen2006: Max Scherzer2007: Phillippe Aumont2008: Justin Smoak2009: Tyler Matzek....................2010: Deck Mcguire2011: George Springer2012: Addison Russell
You won bro
