Legacy Sports Group Brokers Over $300MM

Quick, what agency came in second in total dollars brokered this offseason behind the Boras Corporation?  The answer is Legacy Sports Group, with $306.375MM.  Greg Genske and company keep a relatively low profile, but they had a huge offseason.

Legacy brokered six eight-figure deals this winter: Carl Crawford ($142MM), Adam Dunn ($56MM), Rickie Weeks ($38.5MM), Billy Butler ($30MM), Bobby Jenks ($12MM), and Orlando Hudson ($11.5MM).  The agency doesn't have much in the way of April extension candidates, so the $306.375MM figure might be final.  Note: that number includes one-year arbitration deals.

As for the 2010-11 offseason, Legacy has one big fish: C.C. Sabathia.  Many expect Sabathia to opt out of his contract with the Yankees, which could allow him to top his own record of $161MM for the amount guaranteed to a pitcher.  It may otherwise be a quiet offseason for the firm, as their other free agent clients include Brad Penny, Pat Burrell, Danys Baez, and Scott Kazmir.  They have Francisco Liriano on the horizon as a potential free agent after the 2012 season.
