    I think Boras is going to make the case that $30 million as an annual salary in ten years is going to be peanuts.

    Think about what salaries were like ten years ago.

    I'm willing to have the city of Los Angeles make me pay an A-Rod tax.

    i almost concur... the Dodgers certainly would get a few more dollars from my end.

    That much for any professional athlete is just disgusting....If that is where our priorities as a society lie we are doomed sooner rather than later..

    Im really with !Kings! on this one. This amount of money is just nuts to pay a baseball player. I would say the same thing in adjusted dollars for a young Gretzky in his prime. When baseball finally collapses under its own weight it will be solely traced to agents like Boras.
    What sets him apart is that he’s big, and he can skate, and he can protect the puck from anyone. If you’re trying to get it and he doesn’t want you to get, you’re not going to. -Justin Williams on Kopitar

    Why? The owner of the franchise that pays said ball player is making exponentially more cash than that 35 million per year. Why are we doomed as a society when a player makes that much cash but not doomed when the owner of the team makes 20 times that amount?

    If only no team would pursue him. That'll bring Boras and ARod off their high horse. 30 mil a year is ridiculous. 25 mil a year is already ridiculous.

    A-Rod can go take a flying leap.

    But I know the Angels will sign him to make that misguided signing to address the power situation which won't really fix anything because he does nothing in the playoffs. They won't win anything and will sink into horribleness under the weight of his salary.
