“Who is Scott Boras?”

It’s a slow news day so I’m going to tell you a story about a conversation that I had this morning.

My brother, Curt, who lives in San Diego, called me at 6AM his time. I was worried that, at that hour, it was some sort of an emergency. I answered.

“Who’s Scott Boras?” he said. He pronounced it with the accent on the wrong syllable — “Scott borAS” which made it pretty clear he had literally no idea. I explained that he is baseball’s most famous agent and that he’s kind of a big deal in my world.

“Oh, OK, that makes sense,” he said. “He’s blowing up in K-Pop circles right now.” K-Pop, referring to pop music coming out of South Korea, is my brother’s world.

Would that that were a question many of us could ask….

It reminded me of some old traditional or two tone ska fan getting insulted if you asked them if they liked Reel Big Fish or something.


What's wrong with Reel Big Fish?!

Final Jeopardy: This bloviating jackass is known for constantly insulting the intelligence of baseball fans and recently got fired by Gio Gonzalez and Martin Maldonado."

And that was how James Holzhauer landed his dream job.

Yeah, but Scott Boras never ####### let someone sign an Ozzie Albies contract.

If I were an MLB player I would happily hire Boras. He has won a LOT more than he’s lost in his particular arena.

Historically, yes, but things have changed. His clown act doesn't play nearly as well anymore.

There's no reason he should "lose" any. Replacement level is market value.

Alex: Oh, Sorry Elroy. You forgot to phrase your answer in the form of a question. James, what was your answer....

Holzhauer: Who is the bloviating jackass known for constantly insulting the intelligence of baseball fans and recently got fired by Gio Gonzalez and Martin Maldonado?

John Galt?
