I don't know about you guys... but I say good for Arte Moreno for not playing Boras's game. He constantly uses teams against one another to drive up the bids for his clients. Take this contract, or go fuck yourself, Boras and Beltre. We'll grab Podsednik and Soriano, we'll make do with a platoon at third (or maybe Wood will show some significant improvement), bullpen will be better, starting staff will be good, with a full season of Haren. We will bounce back. I know we'd like to sign all the big guys... but heck, where did that get us in the 80's with that virtual All-Star team? WE WILL WIN WITH WHAT WE'VE GOT.
Forget about the 'would you go back in time and assassinate Hitler' argument. We should be focusing on Boras!
