WaPo: No One Expected a Strasburg Extension, then Boras made a call

A really interesting in-depth look at how the Strasburg extension came together. RTFA


Thursday, May 12, 2016

First Strasburg, Then Arrieta

“The misconception is that Scott wants everyone to go to free agency,” Arrieta said of Boras. “I made it clear I like Chicago. I think everyone knows that. If I had it my way, I’d stay here. That’s just one side of the story. We’ll see.”

When asked whether he’d give a hometown discount to the Cubs, Arrieta flatly said “no” while shaking his head.

Arrieta said “aces get 7 years”—just as Strasburg got—so think of that as a starting point. And think $200 million as one, as well.

Boras is 63 and might be planning his retirement.
