The Inner Thoughts Of Scott Boras(s)??
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports dot com has an interesting theory that delves into the possibility that super agent Scott Boras(s) WANTS his client, Mark Teixeira, to go to the Boston Red Sox. Rosenthal's actual quote is right here for you...
"Teixeira, a native of Maryland, would be happy to go back East, happy to accept whatever ridiculous deal the Red Sox gave him. And that way, both the Angels and Yankees would remain options for Manny Ramirez, Boras's other major free agent slugger. The Angels could sign free agent lefthander CC Sabathia with the money they had slotted for Teixeira. And In the end, it would look like this...Teixeria to Boston, CC Sabathia and Ramirez to the Angels. The Yankees would freak out if all that transpired, and yet another Boras client — free agent righthander Derek Lowe — would be the immediate beneficiary." Adds Rosenthal: "If you think Boras lacks the vision to formulate such a grandiose plan, then you haven't been paying attention for oh, about the past 20 years."
Peter here, and I think I like, no LOVE, that possibility. Hankie and Hal would literally go insane as their team would founder and sink like the post-iceberg Titanic. Sabathia and Ramirez will make the Angels a club to be reckoned with once again. Boston's lineup would be as fearsome as it was in '04 and '07. The Yankees would probably take Derek Lowe and explore their other options. But much will happen before that scenario is played out. The winter meetings commence on December 8th...all hell could break loose. But remember this...the Red Sox will make Teixeira a stupendous offer. Let Sabathia and Manny (thank goodness) go elsewhere. The prize catch, other than Sabathia, is slugger/first baseman Teixeira, and I'd LOVE to see him in a Boston uniform. Boras(s) usually will strive for the biggest cash deal possible for every one of his clients, but it's nice to think that Rosenthal might be right. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
It's Sunday, the last day of November. We're racing toward Christmas at a supersonic rate...sometimes I wish that time would slow down...just a little. But usually the days blur by into a colorful haze, one by one by one. I guess that's part of life. You can title click for more on the Sox, and I hope everyone has a great day. I also hope that your Thanksgiving holiday was a gem and as always, BE WELL. Shalom.
