Superagent Scott Boras has made waves again this offseason as the agent of Mark Teixeira. He's also still negotiating for Derek Lowe and Manny Ramirez, among others.
This morning on "Squawk Box," I sat down with Boras for a wide-ranging interview.
Darren Rovell: With your client Mark Teixiera, a lot of people were saying you were waiting too long. The Angels are out, the Red Sox are out, now here come the Yankees. Can you take me behind the scenes on that one?
Scott Boras: I think from the start, the type of player that Mark is and what he means to a major league team, there were really as many as ten teams that were trying to employ him from the start of free agency...And how it unfolds really is that you have a player meeting and the teams, and the teams are making evaluations and through that really four or five-week process, Mark came up with a decision. And I think the marketplace and Mark had a meeting of the minds.
DR: Did the Yankees really come out of nowhere, though?
SB: No. The Yankees were involved the whole time. They had met with Mark up to four or five weeks ago. They had been involved in the process throughout.Page 1 of 5 | Next Page
