    No surprise on Pelfrey. I can’t remember the last time Boras let one of his clients sign a multiyear deal before testing the market.

  2. Danks’s agent is really smart. He is one of those guys that just doesn’t get injured, so as he improves, his value continues to skyrocket. If I needed to start my team with a pitcher, there are few guys I would want more than Danks.

      really? I mean Danks is good and all…but I can rattle off quite a list of names that are better than he is. I understand the homer-ism…but c’mon. Few guys?

      • Yes, he’s not THE best, and not very flashy. But he continuously is a very good pitcher with ability to shut down a team. Their are some guys I’d rather have, yes, probably about 10-12. But considering his youth, his left handedness and his impressive stats, I really like him
