Scott Boras Drives a Hard Bargain

Baseball's super-agent tries to get the most for his clients

He strikes fear into the hearts of baseball's general managers. He's disliked by many baseball fans even though he's an unassuming guy. When you scan the room its not like he stands out. He blends in. If you didn't know him, you wouldn't know he was there. But this is the time everyone in baseball feels his presence.

He’s Scott Boras. I know you don't want to hear about him. He holds the cards for the Angels Mark Teixeira and the Dodgers Manny Ramirez. Ultimately, he'll decide where they play.

It hasn't always been good. He had the Alex Rodriguez fiasco, but that was the exception. His guys listen to him and he makes them millions of dollars.

For the Dodgers and Angels sake, I wish he wasn't representing their top two targets. On the other hand, if I was a player I'd want him to represent me.
