Boras has his say from on high

Scott Boras marched into the media work room a few minutes ago, closely followed by about two dozen notebook-carrying reporters.

Boras climbed up on the camera platform and addressed the masses about his many clients.

Say this for Jason Varitek: He has an agent who cares about him. As he did at the GM Meetings a month ago, Boras worked hard to boost Varitek’s value despite his horrific offensive season in 2008. He went so far as to compare catchers to submarines, saying you have to look under the surface.

Boras offered no specifics. Derek Lowe has plenty of offers and would like to play on the East Coast. He didn’t talk to much about Manny Ramirez, however. I’m certainly not suggesting collusion, but it does seem that GMs are very wary of Manny and his act.

Outside of the Dodgers, not one team has come out and admitted to interest.
