Negotiating with Scott Boras 

June, 3, 2011
There will be the day that Scott Boras, player agent from the Boras Corporation, becomes the first agent inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The free-agent draft is an area he has dominated since the record-breaking Andy Benes deal of $235,000 in 1988.

I personally negotiated hundreds of contracts with Scott Boras and his corporation from 1985 through 2008, with Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa becoming the last amateur contract I would ever negotiate with him. Thank goodness.

I found Scott to be bright, quick, intelligent, challenging, prepared, deceptive (in terms of bluffing), entertaining, but also predictable.
