Undeterred by last winter’s free-agent freeze, Scott Boras is even more himself – The Athletic

Yesterday I listened to the interview with Boras shill Casey Stern (which you can listen to On Demand on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM). Although his hyperbolic shtick can be amusing in short doses, it wears thin in a half-hour interview. 

Anyway, Boras rehashed a lot of the interview with reporters, including Dave O’Brien here.

“We have all kinds of evidence that anybody who’s done what Bryce Harper has done (at his age) — they’re Hall of Famers,” Boras said. “I can show it 12 different ways. So you have a chance to employ a 25-year-old future Hall of Famer; you (rarely) get that opportunity. And the other thing is, Bryce has iconic value, which creates revenues for teams in addition to his performance. Those types of players are rare and they pay for themselves.”
