you are underestimating Boras then. The hype is already at fever pitch and there are about 6 teams that are lining up to throw cash at him currently - and he still hasent worked out.
Im calling it right now - he gets signed without ever working out. He'll undergo a physical, but not work out. The reason I say that is because the Tigers are involved. As usual he is using us as a bargaining chip against the other teams. He already has said "Their doctors have talked with Magglio's doctors, they're certainly comfortable he'll be ready to go by spring training." You can already see the misinformation growing: because their doctors talked to Maggs doctors he's ready to go - no workouts necessary.
As the articles state - he's the best FA on the market - the line forms to the right. You want a workout? ok, we'll call you.
You have to know when to believe an agent and when not to. When it comes to Boras, hype means nothing. Remember Millwood's ghost teams last offseason (something like 6 teams, 7 year deal, over $100 million?)? Never actually materialized though. Ended up with a 1 year deal. Big shocker.
Anyway, he will have to work out in order for some teams to even make an offer anywhere near what Boras wants. Not working out for the teams shows one of two things: Either A: He's not healthy, or B: Both of them are idiots for eliminating potential teams from the bidding by not working out. Now, I don't believe for one second that Boras or Maggs is stupid, so if he's still refusing to work out for the teams, then I don't buy it that he's healthy and 100%. That means he will get a smaller deal for less money (like a 1 year deal), or some team will be stupid and throw money at him and pray he can get healthy quick.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
