Is it fair to say that the king of pushing the bar is being left behind? Yeah, he gets mega-millions for his elite cliental (as ANYONE would and should, I'm looking at you jz) but what about joe average? Kenny Rogers? Jason Varitek? Michael Bourn? Kendrys Morales? Steve Drew? Hold outs...mystery team...hyman writing stories. Owners and GM's just are not buying his b.s. tactics anymore. Detroit most surely would have signed drew if boras didn't ask for the world (and if you think he didn't, why is drew STILL on the sidelines when a world series contender with NO shortstop isn't willing to meet your demands)? And today, word leaked out that Morales received a 3/30 offer and declined, then turned down 1/14. Who does morales/boras think they are, David Ortiz??? As obvious as it is when you sign with boras (that you are a greedy s.o.b.), middle players and lower, I recommend you read the tea leafs and look for someone who is working positively in the current cba and doesn't instantly poison your expected paycheque because the GM's are not receptive to the boras representation. (sorry about the lack of paragraphs, I hit 'enter' but the system doesn't take me to a new line)

Best post ever?
No, this one is from last year's Nick Franklin player page:
I think they're sitting him because they know Jedd Gyorko went on the DL, and they are obviously ****ing with me
Franklin said "F me" after k'ing against Mariano the other day, but Wedge thought he said "xFIP" and benched him instantly for using a dirty Sabermetric word. When Franklin protested, explaining why would a batter ever use that term after an at bat because it has to do with pitching, Wedge became angry and responded "I see all those walks you take, Moneyball! Next you'll try to tell me you should be in the lineup because of how high your Beebop is"! When Franklin asked if he meant Babip, Wedge threatened to demote him for Ackley.
