MLB Winter Meetings Will Be Scott Boras’s Show Once Again

Rarely have the annual baseball Winter Meetings belonged to one agent the way the ones next week belong to Scott Boras. He represents the three free agents this winter who are expected to sign contracts of at least $150 million: pitchers Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg and third baseman Anthony Rendon.

No agent ever has negotiated three free agent deals that big in the same offseason, and when Boras is done he will have negotiated 12 of the 37 biggest contracts in history.

Oh, and by the way, he also represents free-agent pitchers Hyun-Jin Ryu and Dallas Keuchel, outfielder Nicholas Castellanos and third baseman Mike Moustakas, who already signed with Cincinnati for $64 million over four years.

By the time Boras is done he will have negotiated free agent deals worth close to what the entire free agent class of 10 years ago secured: $847 million.

With Don Wilson as Scott Boras’ portly announcer, Phil Harris as his drunken bandleader, and Dennis Day as his idiot boy singer!

While I never understood the extreme relucatance teams had for Moose over the last two years, I really wasn't expecting him to land a 4/$64 contract this offseason. It carries him for ages 31-34 for a perfectly solid but also stable, unspectacular player who seems one of the types we expect to fade badly at 33-34. So good job on that one Boras.
