Just putting this out there

You feel that?

That low rumble? Almost like the ground is shifting under superagent Scott Boras?


Seth Mnookin over at Feeding the Monster has put together a great recap of the past 72 hours in the Daisuke Matsuzaka signing process which basically outlines how Boras is screwing himself as we speak.

My favorite part is how Boras is backpeddaling on his $100 million demand:

Scott Boras is insisting that he did not say that Matsuzaka should receive $100 million; he merely said that’s what pitchers in today’s market are receiving. (Pretty much everyone who saw the press conference thought he said that’s what Matsuzaka should get.) Boras also stressed that Bill Clinton did not have sex with that woman.

There's no way this ends well for Boras if the deal doesn't get done - not that it'd be a picnic for the Red Sox to lose out, either - but you have to hand it to the front office for pulling a West Wing and marching right into the lion's den and making a PR mess for Boras and company.

Two days and counting...
