Sox Offer to Boras for Damon in the Works

How Scott Boras Adds Value to Baseball, Teams,
and Fans by Selling 'Icon Players'

The Dodgers thank Scott Boras for convincing them to sign J.D. Drew for 5 years, $55 million and for getting them to sign Derek Lowe for 4 years, $36 million. They previously thanked Boras for Kevin Brown's 7-year, $105 million deal and the venerable Darren Dreifort's 5-year, $55 million contract.

The Seattle Mariners are grateful to Scott Boras for getting Adrian Beltre for 5 years, $64 million.

The Detroit Tigers are equally blessed to have Magglio Ordonez at 5 years, $75 million.

Looking further back, the Devil Rays were fortunate to pay Matt White $10.1 million to not play while the Texas Rangers were lucky to get Chan Ho Park at 5 years, $65 million and
saved the franchise by signing A-Rod for 10 years, $252 million.
