SCOTT BORAS PORTRAIT FROM MEN’S JOURNAL
He may not have been able to get outfielder Manny Ramirez a new $100 million contract, but Scott Boras is still the best agent in baseball by far.The magazine Men’s Journal has a profile on Boras this month where they actually refer to him as “the anti-Christ.”
The article’s author, Mark Taibbi, hilariously refers to Boras’ office as a “supervillain lair.” He also describes the agent physically as looking like “a cross between an Orange County golf instructor and a Serbian police official.” Taibbi also describes Boras as “pudgy.”
Upon meeting Boras, Taibbi describes the superagent by writing he “seemed almost crazy”and also manages to work in the phrase “damaged goods.” Yet, through it all, the piece is very pro-Boras, pro-labor and pro-union. Taibbi’s article also describes Boras as being offended by being referred to as “Satan” since, “I’m a good catholic boy.”
