Scott Boras: Bogie And JBJ Will Likely Hit Free Agency

Agent Provocateur Scott Boras has a message for you: enjoy Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley, Jr. now—they may be gone in a couple of years. Bogie can become a free agent after the 2019 season, while JBJ could be out there one year later. And, since they are both represented by Boras, you can bet your Curt Flood vintage baseball card that he will put them out there. Boras told CSNNE’s Evan Drellich, "Because the system has a track record whereby a lot of players who sign contracts prior to free agency have a value component that is, more often than not after a consideration by the player, not of the value he would receive by waiting." Uh-Oh! Time for John Henry to put on a full-Stephen Strasburg and sign these guys long-term now.
