Morning Grind: Boras, What A Mets, GM Scavenger Hunt
We have come to a place I never thought would ever be. Scott Boras, the Super Agent himself, and I might actually agree on something. He believes that the Mets can make a quick turnaround, provided they use their considerable funds. There are a few teams around the league that do this. Should be pretty simple, right?
“The New York Mets are probably in the top five in baseball as a model of what can be done,” Boras said. “The business and infrastructure is run very well by the Wilpons. The issue is transferring the success they enjoy in business and operating revenue issues and getting it to the field. I know they’re working hard…….New York is a great place to play. If I had a player who wanted to play there, I’d call any team they desire and the Mets are a valid option…..The GM has to establish his control,” Boras said. “In 30 years of doing this, the best and most successful general managers have the biggest rubber bands and know when to flex them and when to retract and rebuild. If a GM doesn’t have the ability to sign an impact player, it can impact a club for years.”
I may not agree with every single thought but this has merit. Is there an underlying motive for Boras’ comments or does he genuinely feel that Flushing is a great place to play baseball and ideal for his present and future clients? Regardless, I think he is right whether genuinely spoken or not. Speaking of the GM scavenger hunt…..
