Manny Ramirez who now wants to stay in Boston after years of bitching that he wants out..has switched agents. He has signed with..drumroll please..
Scott Boras. Boras, as most fans of baseball know..is the devil incarnate. From a May 07 writeup on Scotty:
Major League Baseball is a $6 billion-a-year industry, more profitable than ever. To Boras and his clients, that makes it a game of percentages on and off the field. As baseball revenues grow, so do salaries, thanks in large part to him. He was the first agent to sign players to multiyear $50 million, $100 million and $200 million contracts, as league revenues rose to $1 billion, $3 billion and $6 billion, respectively. Last year, he negotiated the largest contract ever for a Japanese player, Daisuke Matsuzaka, who signed with the Boston Red Sox for $52 million — after the Sox paid $51 million for the rights to sign him — and the largest ever for a pitcher, Barry Zito, who went with the San Francisco Giants for $126 million.
The Zito contract is a bust at this point..unless he does something this year..the Giants got hosed on that deal. His era last year was a whopping 4.53..up from 3.67 the year before with the A's. He also lost more games(11-13) than he won. I call it a bust because of the stats I just quoted..I could however be wrong..its been known to happen. I just hate how guys sign huge contracts and then promptly suck hind tit the following year..
Bitchy, opinionated female that loves sports.
