...and the other 70% is what exactly? Thanks to Craig at Shysterball for the link, helping me get thru a nasty chest/head cold. (emphasis mine)
Reflecting on the criticism, Boras said: “I only get the negativity because it’s written so much, about here he goes again doing something different, it’s always about money. Seventy percent of what we do is not about money; it’s about advancing players and getting players to be better.I'm hardly a writer and I am often without facts, but I have a pair of eyes (long since corrected by laser surgery) that can see what I believe to be true. Boras is an advocate for his clients and that's his role. I know his firm spends a ton of money on training and testing and getting his stable ready to play, which is key. But, the truth is, he out-maneuvers many GM's by installing these opt-outs and player options. He is probably the best at what he does: getting the most money for his clients.
“When I have families come in when we represent the premium people in the draft and they look at me — mothers, fathers, players — and thank me for what you do,” Boras said, adding that the criticism did not bother him. And certainly not, he said, when the criticism is coming from “a writer who is without the facts.”
And it IS about the money. Right?
The article did have the interesting graphic (to the upper right) highlighting Boras' clients in this post-season alone. At what point does he effectively control one club?
