Angels owner Arte Moreno was asked a question about Scott Boras yesterday. His response:
“My mother always told me, ‘If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
That kind of stuff makes me roll my eyes. Braves’ President John Schuerholz took a fairly similar attitude toward Boras a few years back and it drove me just as nuts. Boras is not surprising anyone by being a sharp dealer. He is who he is and you should know that going in. Deal with him just as sharply or don’t deal with him at all, but please, spare me the drama team executives. It just makes you look like you’re not ready for prime time.
And really, Arte, hasn’t your winter been humbling enough without making yourself look even smaller?
