Bryan Colangelo, is that you?
Also, please include your exact affiliation with Satan as well as 15 reasons why Matt Wieters deserves a 9 figure deal in the 2019-2020 offseason.

Only a little eh?

lol..”exact affiliation with Satan” lol..
Wait. Why do you think there’s a job opening? Satan could no longer stomach what was going on there and quit.

Am I hired?

yup,can you start say bout a week from never? lol
I am proficient in Excel but have like no experience with any products because I think Apple sux! And the other thing I didn’t know Apple and Excel were compatible.
Although I wonder if I could Excel to prove to Boras the MLB is overpaying all of Boras’s players and shaking down the economy at large. I wonder if he would like to hear that
I love the fact that to apply to Boras Corp you send your resume to a gmail account.
It’ll be even better when I send mine from an AOL account.
Seriously. My company doesn’t even sniff the dollar amount that he has, and I’d still have an email setup with my companies g suite.
Drives me insane when businesses have @gmail as their email.
al avias phone
ya mean a hot mail account wouldn’t work either?? lol
Hmmmm perhaps they don’t want to make internal email address public.
This is the weirdest roster move article I’ve seen on this page in a long time. I don’t recognize any names.
They forgot to link former minor leaguer Scott Boras.
U both old and dumb…try reading
“Your minimum annual salary requirement”
If you want neighbors who are not “homies” demand $200,000-
The OC is expensive.
Not sure there’s a dollar amount that would even get me to think of moving to California, happiness has no price.
Sounds like a sick gig tho.
The traffic. Good god, the traffic.
I applied and let Mr. Boras know I wasn’t interested in discussing the position further.
Are you going to apply Tim? I would gladly recommend you. Definitely not Jeff or Steve, but I would put in a good word for you. I know you’re looking for something bigger and better; you haven’t had that sparkle in your eye for awhile now. Although come to think of it, maybe it’s glaucoma?
Must be proficient in dog and pony shows using smoke and mirrors. Develop a mathematical proof that someone who hits .230 every year will likely hit .300 for the rest of their career. Use acronyms and abbreviated terms only and by all means include bar graphs, pie charts and maybe even a few humorous memes. Maybe even an overlay of the landing location of all batted balls superimposed over a little league ballpark. That would be good.
I would apply but they ask for salary requirements, which means hire the lowest bidder which is ironic from the boras corporation. . I think mlb teams should do that with free agents then.
In fact they are destroying sports Scott Boras should be banned from being an agent. Him and his kind are destroying baseball. I don’t understand why athletes don’t negotiate themselves. Save a lot of money.
some atheletes do but most would be incompetent and inept. Boras is very good at what he does. there’s a reason the top players pay him.
It’s the dogma of the rebuild and lack of integrity in trying to put the best team on the field that’s harming baseball not Scott Boras. Youth has become over valued and experience and skill is under valued. No one wants to pay major league prices or even waste their time for what is basically an exhibition game. There is not incentive for teams to be competitive unless they are a favorite to go to the playoffs and that’s unfortunate, because often the underdog used to come in and upset the favorite. It also doesn’t help that there is so much of an emphasis on home runs and less strategic play. Hitters have more advantages than ever and it’s taking away from makes baseball a unique game.

Because the high paid negotiators that the owner employs will take advantage of the players. Agents also do a lot for the players like organize travel accommodations, marketing opps, offseason opps, and help with cultural adjustment, etc. but yea, let the owners sick their executive dogs on these young kids, some who aren’t even familiar with this country or versed in general business practices, I’m sure they will get a fair shake because the owners have proven throughout history to be very pro player
Most athletes barely have a high school diploma and had difficulty even getting that far. Have you heard Blake Snell before? Sweet mother of Lemmy, he should have stayed in school.
This is similar to the people that don’t set their price and say “make an offer” then laugh in your face at said offer. Figure it out and just post numbers, ugh.

Great gig, good luck to anyone that applied. Rent and housing is insane in socal.
Additionally, with your email, attach a presentation explaining why Chris Herrmann should not sign for less than 5 years and $120m.
Seriously??? emoji with eye roll attached
