08:04 AM ET 01.07 | Time is running out on Scott Boras. Once again, the Avenging Agent has seemingly overplayed his hand with his high-profile free-agent clients. ... But unlike previous winters, when Boras was able to turn from Napoleon at Waterloo into Houdini at the eleventh hour by plucking a market-breaking offer out of his hat from the proverbial "one dumb owner" -- as he did last year when the Detroit Tigers' Mike Ilitch, one of his favorite patsies, bailed him out on Prince Fielder by bidding against himself for the rotund and immobile 28-year-old DH/first baseman, the last big-ticket free agent standing, with a nine-year, $214 million contract on Jan. 26 -- this year a number of factors are working against him.

well sure there is,,,Bourn should get a deal 8 millions per year= 40 millions 5 years contract its a plus, Boras has to understand this guy is not hamilton or miguel cabrera,,,

about the closer Soriano,,, 6 millions per year=24 millions contract 4 years deal would be the best offer plus no closer gets 12 millions a year as a closer,,,,
