Sox Machine: Soriano deal proves why White Sox, Boras don't mix

Hell, imagine what Mark Buehrle’s negotiations would have looked like in 2007 if Boras steered him. That contract included less money than he would have received on the open market, and he ended up only getting partial no-trade protection counterbalanced by a poison pill. Soriano’s contract concedes nothing. It’s the kind of contract that only the Yankees and Red Sox could absorb, so they’re better off having him. Nevertheless, the next time you start to consider the White Sox pursuing a marquee Boras client, remember this deal. This is why it never happens.
