02/07/2005: 5% of A Lot is still quite a bit of money.....
Over at The Cardinals Birdhouse, Brian Walton takes a look at this year's off season for sports überagent Scott Boras. What really interested me is this table (for those of you not playing the home game, these are Scott Boras's marquee baseball clients):
Player New Team Contract Duration Boras’ take
Adrian Beltre Seattle $64 M 5 years $3.2 M
Carlos Beltran NY Mets $119 M 7 years $5.95 M
Derek Lowe LA Dodgers $36 M 4 years $1.8 M
Kevin Millwood Cleveland $7 M 1 year $0.35M
Jason Varitek Boston $40 M 4 years $2.0 M
J.D. Drew LA Dodgers $55 M 5 years $2.75 M
Magglio Ordonez Detroit $75 M 5 years $3.75 M
Totals: $396 M $19.8M
Nice work when you can get it....
