View Full Version : Cool Neyer Quote

This quote is in reference to Boras saying the following:

"You're talking about a very special guy who has never missed a start," Boras says. "His durability has been rewarded with 102 wins. He has (a Cy Young trophy) in his back pocket. He has three All-Stars. He beat ( Minnesota's Johan) Santana (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6441), the best pitcher in baseball, in the postseason.
"Barry could be one of the best left-handed pitchers of all time. Players like this are Maddux-esque."

Neyer then writes:

Boras says that Zito is a "special player," but what exactly makes him special? How good is Zito, really? It's obvious that he's not Maddux-esque, or Carlton-esque, or Glavine-esque. But is Zito even Oswalt-esque, or Halladay-esque? Buehrle-esque?

Please notice the bold print.

Sorry but I have to post it....

"Barry Zito is this generations Warren Spahn. Let the bidding begin at $200 million!"

I'd love to meet Borass in a dark alley.

Are you sure? You might kick his butt, but he'll eat your soul!
