Andrus on Boras
The eight-year contract that Elvis Andrus is getting from the Rangers defies predictions that he would be gone after 2014. Andrus is represented by Scott Boras, who has a reputation for taking his clients to free agency and not doing contract extensions to prevent that.
Andrus said it was important that he wanted to stay in Texas.
“We’re the boss,” Andrus said. “I know everybody thinks that about Scott but it’s different if you’re the one in that position. He works for us. I know he tries to get the best deal that he can but it comes down to my choice and what’s better for me and my family.”
The contract is expected to be officially announced on Thursday.
