Soto is gonna look great in a Mariners uniform.  They have a loaded minor league system, cash, and a GM that isn't a complete and total moron.

Those are some expensive millimeters.

Oh geez. Soto and Rodriguez in the same lineup for years?

Also, Rizzo knows he's gone as soon as the team is sold, so he's going to want to try to make a good impression for his next job interview. Getting a sub-par return for Soto because you insisted on including an overpaid, washed-up, nearly-worst-in-the-majors pitcher wouldn't help that.

It's a Boras trade, of course he farking is playing it like an Italian Opera, and of course his own org leaked the details.  That guy should be banned from baseball, he's farking created more real enmity and ill will in baseball of anything since the end of segragation.

How? By trying to get his clients as much money as possible?

No, no, you don't understand, players should be playing FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME only.

No because he's an attention whore agent who negotiates to satisfy his own ego rather than the needs of his clients.

Are his clients underpaid?

Just read about Trout hurting his back trying to carry that team.  I'm sure Ohtani's out of there soon, if not by trade deadline then for sure free agency.

Shouldn't he be willing to play by the union contract and go through arbitration for the next decade?

His clients consistently get massive contracts.  What "need" is it you're talking about that you think Boras is ignoring?

The need to not look like a massive asshole during public negotiations. The type of clients he represents are going to get massive contracts regardless. There are plenty of agents that could get similar deals without all the histrionics

Why do his clients care if he looks like an asshole? And if any agent can do it why does he represent most of the top-10 highest paid players?

That's not a Scott Boras need.  That's a SuperChuck need, and I doubt very much if Boras' clients give a shiat about SuperChuck's needs.

Boras represents the top 10 payed profesisonal athletes in all of sports.  And they are on that list because Boras negotiated those contracts.   His "need" is "squeeze as much cash out of the organization as possible" and that is why he represents as many players as he does.

If you want to get paid the most, Boras is the guy you talk to.

I'm beginning to wonder whether there is something in D.C.'s air. The city's teams -- the Nats, D.C. United, the Wizards, to say nothing of the farking football team -- are not just poor. They're awful. They are badly managed, badly coached, badly put together and badly owned. Serves D.C. right, I suppose.

Your theory only goes as far back as 2019?

Or it suggests that success in D.C. results in immediate and complete failure.
