If you're a baseball fan, this name most likely sends chills down your spine and you looking for a trash can to throw up in. Not only did he corrupt young Jedi Jacoby, he's the Uber Agent for roughly 88% percent of MLB players the best I can figure.
I gotta hand it to the guy; he can make chicken salad out of chicken s**t better than anyone I've ever laid my eyes on. His latest magic trick is attempting to get Jason Varitek a huge money contract after The Captain just went through the worst year of his career.
And he's using a submarine as an analogy.
I have no idea what all this means, other than the fact that there is no team on earth who is going to give Tek the kind of money Boras is asking for. Not even the Yankees, although in the back of my mind I keep imagining them giving Tek a plaque in Monument Park and retiring his number if he would agree to back up the chinless wonder.
Not to mention Manny and his 4 year, $100 million dollar quest that is going to end up making Geraldo's special on busting into Al Capone's vault look like the best idea since the remote control.
All I know is I hate the Hot Stove, wish Spring Training was here already, and my head hurts.
Did anyone let him know we're in a recession?
