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.
