Boras on Choo, Texas: “It’s a good fit.”
Scott Boras walking briskly through the lobby to another meeting, acknowledged the Rangers interest in free agent outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and said, “It’s a good fit.”
He also added, “There’s a lot of play on this guy. He’s a good fit for a lot of teams.”
As to where the negotiations were, Boras said, “You know how it is when you run a mile. The last 100 yards are the hardest.”
It was suggested to Boras that he is asking for too much money on Choo. He loved that question.
“You know,” Boras said with a smile. “I’ve heard that a lot before.”
The Rangers have met with Boras but club officials are saying privately that the price on Choo is too high and there seems to be a better chance of bringing back Nelson Cruz.
That’s where it stands right now.
