I really do not understand this. I feel like these agents have way too much power because of desperate owners. Every owner is trying to appease a hungry fan base, and they outbid themselves into stupid positions. Right now there are 4 teams in the running for Lester, with a "mystery" team in the background. What does that even mean??? Who is to say that this mystery team is just a figment of the imagination?
Then there is Max Scherzer. He is represented by Scott Boras (who might be a despicable human being, but is damn good at his job). Boras essentially is even using the age of owners (yes, Mike Ilitch) to sell his player. But what I wonder is, don't these owners know that they have been burned by these promises before? "This is the guy to get you the championship, I know it" => how many times can these owners here this before they start thinking "maybe he is lying to me" lol
