It Was Scott Boras vs. MLB Owners

Major League Baseball managed to end their lockout and salvage a full 162-game season despite delaying Opening Day to April 7th. Dan Patrick thinks it could have been resolved much sooner if it hadn’t been for Scott Boras. He and his cadre of players were making the most extreme demands and were the last to compromise. That may not have been the only factor that delayed this resolution, but it certainly was a big one.

Dan Patrick: “This felt like it was Scott Boras’s clients against baseball’s owners. That’s what it felt like because those players didn’t want to agree to this contract. They had more extreme demands because of Scott Boras. And make no mistake about it, Scott Boras is a commissioner of sorts; the de facto commissioner with his players.”
