Hernandez hires Boras...

Hernandez hires Boras

The Padres' negotiations with Ramon Hernandez, a pending free agent, just grew infinitely more difficult, but not from anything the catcher did on the field. Hernandez has hired Scott Boras, the toughest and most powerful agent in baseball, to represent him after cutting ties with Eric Goldschmidt.

Hernandez's camp reportedly broke off talks with the Padres just before the start of the season, when the two sides were about $12 million apart. The hiring of Boras could be a signal that Hernandez intends to test the free-agent market, where the 29-year-old figures to command a large contract in the vein of the $40 million, four-year deal signed by Boston's Jason Varitek ---- a Boras client ---- last winter.

Boras also represents Padres utility player Xavier Nady in addition to such superstars as Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds, Carlos Beltran and Derek Jeter.


Well...I guess this is the last season for Hernandez in San Diego. No way he returns to the team with a figure anywhere close to what he's demanding. I only hope that now we can fully concentrate on Giles...he's more important as is.

Posada is signed in '06 (~$12M) and has an option for '07. Doesn't seem likely they'll sign a catcher. I still think there's a good chance he winds up in NY. O:-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Hernandez is a stud; he'd be a good signing for the Mets, if such an anomaly existed.

hernandez is a solid ball player but he is by no means worth 4 year 40 million to a team.....

$10 million for a catcher at 33 years old in the last year of the contract is just ridiculous.

I should note that the Padres are currently offering 3 years for $21 million to Hernandez, which is a good offer, as is.
