“I can only say the Yankees told us they were interested in signing Soriano while expecting Rivera to come back,” agent Scott Boras said.
I don’t want to make this an attack on the young man in North Carolina, who appeared to think there was nothing wrong with reporting a story that began with the words “can’t confirm this.” Scott Boras, Cano’s agent, had no such problem.
Daisuke “Dice-K” Matsuzaka achieved varied success in his five years with the Boston Red Sox, but was the $51,111,111.11 paid for the rights to negotiate with the Japanese star worth the money?
The Yankees have been reluctant to pull the trigger on any big-money pitching contracts this offseason. Is that about to change?
By agreeing to an extension without opting out, CC Sabathia again demonstrated why he’ll be remembered as a beloved Yankee and not a mercenary — like Alex Rodriguez.
It should come as no surprise to anyone that Scott Boras has asked the Yankees to re-work Robinson Cano’s contract.
What the Yankees probably didn’t plan on with CC Sabathia’s opt-out situation looming? Robinson Cano’s agent asking for a re-tooled contract, according to the New York Post.
Statistically, Mark Teixeira hasn’t lived up to the hype since joining the New York Yankees. With the rival Red Sox possessing MVP candidate Adrian Gonzalez, questions about Teixeira will become more frequent the longer he fails to produce.
I woke up Saturday morning and saw a tweet: Jose Reyes was exploring a new agent. Namely, Scott Boras. Being around this situation for the past few months, I knew I had to check it out. And I knew the story was going to be bogus.
The Mets are handling Fred Wilpon’s critical comments about his top players “internally.” Scott Boras has a different approach.
Jose Reyes isn’t worth all the money he wants. Carlos Beltran is no longer a top-tier player. David Wright isn’t a superstar. As Fred Wilpon’s comments continue to be the hot topic, the Mets said in a statement: “We are handling the matter internally.”
Sweeny Murti, the voice of reason, joined Neil Keefe from Tampa to talk about all things Yankees after the first week of spring training games in the Grapefruit League.
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has ended his relationship with longtime agent Scott Boras. “Sometimes I felt like I was Mark Teixeira, Scott Boras client, and not Mark Teixeira, baseball player,” he said.
The Yankees second baseman, Robinson Cano, will have a new agent when he negotiates for a new contract come the 2014 season.
Even those who don’t follow baseball closely had to notice, if only because the figures were so startling. Jayson Werth is a decent enough outfielder, but giving him $126 million over seven years seems unfathomable.
