When you have a system that does not reward performance, you know we have something corrupt in the major league process

If their all for taking pay cuts when performance falls off, why the hell not?

"When you have a system that does not reward performance, you know we have something corrupt in the major league process" Boras told FoxSports.com on Monday. He actually said this with a straight face? And everyone in the room did not immediately collapse in uncontrollable laughter?

mjohnson71: I'd like to know how Mariners fans feel about Boras when I type these two words: Jeff Weaver.


Boras didn't hold a gun to Bill Bavasi's head and make him give out that contract, and in any event it was only a one-year deal.  I actually give Weaver credit for hanging in there that year; he was historically inept for the first couple of months but actually turned it around and pitched pretty well the rest of the way (though he came apart in September, but that's a good thing as the team was already out of it and it probably dissuaded the team from re-upping him).  The turnaround shows he wasn't mailing it in.  He could have easily discovered a mysterious "tightness" in his elbow in late May, written off the season and pocketed his $10 million.  But he didn't; he stuck with it, figured some things out and improved.  It was a bad deal, but not one of the 10 worst of the Bavasi era.

Why Would I Read the Article: tnpir: There is a reason why the sports talk guys here in DFW refer to Boras as either the "Baseball Antichrist" or "The Great Satan."

And that reason is that the sports talk guys there in DFW are idiots.


and now we know Scott Boras' fark handle...
