    I think technically the agents are just "advisors". And players don't declare for the draft. They're just minding their own business, and then from out of nowhere... they get drafted.

    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?
    Immediately the Madson situation comes to mind, but I think that your second line is spot on here. Instead of negotiating for his own perception of the best contract, Boras seems to try very hard to get the player's demands met.
