More on that shifty Boras from Steve Henson at the L.A. Times:
Gagne said during the season he would give the Dodgers a hometown discount to re-sign, but like Drew's assertion that he wouldn't opt out of his contract, those words ring somewhat hollow. Gagne's agent, Scott Boras, turned down a guaranteed one-year, $4-million Dodgers offer with incentives that could have increased the value to $10 million, a source close to the negotiations said.
Yeah, because that $19 million the Dodgers paid him for a total of nine saves over the past two years doesn't merit any kind of hometown discount. Bah, I spit on your potential $10 million offer!
Seriously, I think both Drew and Gagne had the best of intentions when making those hollow promises. Then Boras verbally bitch-slapped them and reminded them, possibly at gunpoint, how much they were worth.
