    Is Chuck republishing these old articles in honor of the 15 year anniversary? I knew I read this before.

    Two years later he still hasn't earned as much as he would have by accepting a qualifying offer.

    I’m old enough to remember Csonka and Syracuse going up against UCLA. One of the best backfields of that era in college football: Csonka and Floyd Little

    Regarding Moose and the Angels last year.... Neither Boras nor the Angels want it out if the Angels made a 3/45 offer. For Boras it looks bad that they rejected it and for the Angels it basically tells Zack Cozart he was their second choice. Also, it’s very possible to make an offer without making a formal offer. They could have discussed a deal in that range and been told it wasn’t enough and never gotten to the point of making a formal offer. That way both sides can then deny an “offer” was made. I don’t know what exactly happened, but my suspicion is the Angels were interested in Moose at 3/45ish but were told that’s not enough so they moved on.

    Agree with you on all of this. My takeaway from it is Boras F**ked up. His blend of arrogance and ignorance backfired and really cost Moustakas. Boras has yet to respond to the change in the marketplace.

    Boras misread the market for sure but ultimately the players screwed themselves. They watched MLB teams evolving and going deeper and deeper into analytics while simultaneously believing it would be business as usual when it would come to FA. Teams were tanking left and right, they sold out on the draft to try to get more money for themselves, then did the same thing with international players but hey -- they got chefs for the post game spread. The arrogance and ignorance is amazing. Also all those sportswriters that mocked teams for making expensive mistakes and all those sites that repeatedly called teams out for being old school or behind the times likewise helped create this situation where nobody wants to be stupid and everyone toes the line salary wise.. Not to mention the heaping of praise for those teams that tanked their way to the top.

Two years, 30 MLB teams -- nobody willing to go more than one year or 10 mil. Should tell you all you need to know about his real value.
