HOUSTON – The Borough of the Astros or the Nationals, the Nationals or the Astros – Scott Boras.
Boras represents the most stars in the 115th Fall Classic, including the Astros 'Jose Altuve and the Nationals' Max Scherzer and Juan Soto. Boras most importantly reps Washington's Anthony Rendon and Stephen Strasburg and Houston's Gerrit Cole –
Boras wants to be a dominant figure this offseason, since he also represents potential free agents Nick Castellanos, Dallas Keuchel, JD Martinez, Mike Moustakas and Hyun-jin Ryu. Depending on how you view the market, Boras could have the top four starters – Cole, Strasburg, Ryu and Keuchel ̵
Normally, Boras attends the World Series and makes himself available to talk about his upcoming free agent crop. But because two of his elite clients – Scherzer and Cole – were facing each other in Tuesday's Game 1, he said he would watch alone, pulling for both. Nevertheless, when Boras said he was expelled from the market,
Boras said he would not be able to pay more in recent slowed-down markets.
"Ironically the teams have been willing to pay for starting pitching in the World Series," Boras said.
Boras emphasizes that neither Strasburg nor Martinez has made a firm decision on whether or not to opt out of his contract. But the expectation is that both wants. Strasburg has four years at $ 100 million left on his pact. In 2019, though, he combined with excellence – so far – postseason dominance that would almost certainly cost him more than $ 100 million.
Cole, almost without question, wants top $ 200 million and possibly the first $ 300 million pitcher. Boras likened Cole to Scherzer in age, ability and having "a very, very low pitching odometer" in terms of innings worked before free agency. Boras said he would not be able to talk about the Yankees would be in it. But Boras alluded to the Yankees and others did not get it.
"Every team did not do it of the greatest trades in history, "Boras said. The decision has been made. A lot of people are going to sit in a room and say, 'Did not we discuss this two years ago?' How is ownership going to look that process and decision? In the free-agent world, a lot of teams did not go after Max Scherzer. The owner did not get the surplus value of $ 100 million more than he paid and has received a World Series. "
As for Rendon, Boras said he has gladly accepted the World Series because" there was a lack of [in October] that he is. "

That turned out to be true. Corbin signed for $ 140 million to join a powerhouse rotation with Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. He proved – in Year 1 – to be a positive purchase, going 14-7 with a 3.25 ERA with 238 strikeouts in 202 innings.
"I really tried to enjoy the whole process," Corbin said. "Having multiple teams show interest in and be able to go to those cities is really enjoyable. At the end of the day, it came down to a couple of things.
Yankee team which certainly needed him in 2019?
"I never second -guessed it, "Corbin said. "I did grow up a Yankees fan.
