Isn't that what he is giving up ??
It's his options right ? not the teams ...?? correct ?
Exactly, player options. So how is he losing money? If he were on the Red Sox, I imagine his possibility of activating his options would go up from 85-90% to 100%. Can he void his options right now if he wants? Would he do that? He'd most likely be losing about $30M if he did, so I highly doubt he will. And if he actually does, good for him. But I'll believe it when I see it.
.... Try 81 million .. thats what you are asking him to give up, 81 million. To go play for a team that is going to make a run ... "This Year" ... They don't even have a closer or 2B yet ... They have a shortstop though, a pretty damn good one too ..
Nope Theo is to busy playing 'Fanatsy Baseball' with the Sox, No way Baghdad Boras allows Arod to give up that money without getting more on the backend ... and in grand Boras fashion , earning interest.
Basically if this goes down .. the Sox will be paying 30 million plus per season for the SS position .. maybe thats the 30 million you meant ...
and what is Theos passion with Boras' clients anyways? The young Theo is going to get burned ... IMO
