Well, that’s different. It’s not a bad idea at all. Boras would get five percent of his next contract, and Gary’s probably better off hiring a lawyer at a fee and negotiating himself. So what if he gets a half million less this way, he still comes out ahead at the salary we’re talking about.
He’s expecting to leave as a free agent, that’s pretty clear. Hopefully, the Braves’ ownership situation will be resolved by the end of the season and they can work out a deal.
