Insider info on pricey Porcello

Postby bigh0rt » Sun Jun 17, 2007 11:48 am

In a telephone interview Friday, Boras acknowledged that it’s often in the best interests of young players to attend college. However, he said the draft must allow unique high school players—and Porcello, in his estimation, is one of them—to be paid what they are worth.

“Any system that does not allow for the truly precocious talents, the extraordinary players, doesn’t understand skill and doesn’t understand professional baseball,” Boras said.

...Boras pointed out that many of his clients signed for more money after college than they were offered out of high school—which suggests the industry might save money by signing the best high-school talent when it becomes available.

“Wouldn’t Tampa Bay love to have Mike Pelfrey?” he asked, in reference to the New York Mets pitching prospect, first drafted by Tampa Bay in 2002. “Wouldn’t the Boston Red Sox love to have Mark Teixeira?”

I personally would love to see Porcello in Carolina Blue for the next 3 years. Ask for the Moon Mr. Boras. :^ :>

PS. Get Bumgarner to ask for the moon as well. ;D
