The Best Quotes from Sports Agent Scott Boras’s Baseball Media Scrum

Scott Boras is a super agent. He’s also a fantastic quote, too.

During his annual media scrum at Major League Baseball’s general manager meetings on Wednesday, Boras’s comments were arguably on par with the high-caliber talent levels of the numerous star athletes he represents.

Below is a compilation featuring some of Boras’s best remarks from his offseason session.

Warning: Many of these quotes are prime examples of what our British friends mean when they state that Mandy Rice-Davies Applies.

Wonder what Scott's position is on The Wall?
The walls are unfair because they warped his clients' numbers by stopping would-be home runs, and they are also unfair because they are too short so cheap homers go over which warps his pitcher clients' numbers.

I’ll assume that Xander Bogaerts’ binder next year will tell us exactly how many home runs he lost to the Monster (and coincidentally will omit mention of homers and doubles gained by the Monster).

We don't need no arbitration
We don't want no short term deal
Got super stats here in this binder
Skippers leave that arm alone
Hey! Skippers! Leave that arm alone
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall

"Wrong, bid it again!"
"If you don't offer 400M, you can't have any Harper
How can you have any Harper if you don't pay 400M?"
"You! GM at the hotel bar, c’mere laddy!"
