White Sox Not Looking For Just Any Starter

Kenny Williams is always aggressive. But just because the White Sox have been kicking the tires on certain pitchers doesn't mean they're in the market for every pitcher.

Jon Heyman, Scott Boras' Go-To Guy

8

If you're wondering how [Jon] Heyman got wind of the [Varitek signing] before any of the Boston beat writers or columnists, be aware that he had Mark Teixeira going to the Yankees before anyone else and, according to his biography, also "broke the story of Barry Bonds going to the Giants in 1992...Alex Rodriguez going to the Yankees in 2004, A-Rod opting out of his $252-million contract in 2007 and Manny Ramirez going to the Dodgers in 2008." Varitek. Teixeira. Manny. A-Rod 2x. Bonds, vintage 1992. Do you notice anything in common? Yes, all of these players are or were represented by Boras at the time of their signings. It is plainly obvious that Heyman, known among fellow writers as scottboras.com, is getting fed such stories by Scott himself, which is fine and dandy except there is more going on here than meets the eye.
