A bit surprised, considering that his previous agent had been touting him as a left-handed Strasburg (inaccurate) and suggested he could get a $60 million dollar contract. Why not just go with Boras and get double that? Also, considering the other guy, no name that he is, had been negotiating for months now, that kind of… sucks for him.
The Hendricks Bros represented Roger Clemens and Jay Buhner, along with current guys like Andy Pettite and Kendry Morales. I would say that if you were holding out hope that the M’s were going to do something here, that might be diminished now. Personally, I think he’s interesting, but not worth nearly as much as he wants. He’s not polished enough to deserve it.
