Re: If Boras gets his way, Choo likely won't be a Red.

"We don't see these types of players in the free-agent market. I only want to talk about our clients, and the last one we had anywhere near this was Jayson Werth."
Thanks for 2013, Mr. Choo. If Boras holds hard to this line of thinking I REALLY dont think the Reds will pay it, nor would I want them to do so. Who knows how it'll pan out...we'll see.
Good luck to the organization who's paying him $20M-plus at age 37.
Rounding third and heading for home...
