I wouldn't say Boros is the best agent. For some of his clients, he gets the most money. But he has also screwed up many times. Overplaying his hand. He's been dropped by quite a few players. And even if he never screwed up in terms of money, he has often screwed up a player's career in the pursuit of short term money.
Thing about Boros, he cares very deeply about 10% of you if you are his client.
Every agent that has been around for as long as Boras has, has been dropped by plenty of guys.
Boras doesn't make these guys sign their deals. If the players tells him that they want X deal, then he tries his best to get him that deal.
What players career has he screwed up in the pursuit of short term money?
