Scott Boras is one of the most polarizing agents in the sports world, but he really crossed the line this time.
We're not sure how we got here, either, but this latest bit of decision-making on behalf of a teenager borders on the absurd.
Yes, it would appear the man is guilty of some strange behavior, convincing his client Carter Stewart, the eighth overall pick by the Atlanta Braves in the 2018 MLB draft, to sign in Japan a year later instead of reentering the draft, ultimately forgoing a large chunk of his expected earnings.
Boras has floated the idea for almost three decades, twice with first overall picks. As the agent of 1991 first overall pick Brien Taylor and 2009 top choice Stephen Strasburg, he used the threat of overseas baseball to squeeze more money out of teams.
The fact that he actually followed through this time, though, and landed Stewart a deal with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks is just ridiculous.
