Hoping Alvarez Affair wasn't all about Boras' rep
September, 22, 2008
As Dejan Kovacevic reports, the Alvarez Affair might be reaching its natural (and predictable) conclusion:
In a stunning reversal of a summer-long drama, the Pirates and top draft pick Pedro Alvarez last night agreed to terms on a revised four-year, major league contract worth a guaranteed $6,355,000, according to three sources intimately familiar with the talks.
The contract is expected to be signed once Alvarez passes a physical, which could happen early this week.
