Boras To The Yankees: "if You Want Snell, Time's Running Out!"

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Scott Boras wouldn’t be Scott Boras if he wasn’t trying to strongarm the Yankees all winter. It feels like a baseball version of a soap opera. These are the Days of our Lives of endless Blake Snell rumors…will he or won’t he be a Yankee?

We’ve covered this a lot over the winter. So much that I am really tired of talking about it…. but, we have to talk about it because it is relevant. Hopefully, the story changes soon and we won’t hear about all of these rumors about where Snell’s new home will be. If Boras has it his way, Snell will have a new home sooner rather than later, check it out HERE.

Boras is trying to strongarm the Yankees. He’s had conversations with Hal Steinbrenner himself. He’s been trying to sell the Yankees on this crazy pipe dream that Snell is worth $30 million a season over 9 years and thankfully Hal isn’t buying it. Over the past few days, we have seen these “reports” that Hal and Boras are making progress, but sources are saying otherwise and report “it’s going nowhere.” I’ve seen X go nuts lately because Hal and Boras are talking, and Brian Cashman isn’t involved. That’s a cool story…. but I’m not buying it.

And speaking of not buying it, neither is Hal who has said “no thanks” to Boras more than once now. Hal won’t okay the 110 percent luxury tax surcharge that would force him to pay Snell upwards of $60 million in 2024. I can’t say I am surprised by hearing that. It’s not a matter of the Yankees not having the money, we know they do but that doesn’t mean they want to. Not for nothing, I don’t want to pay that for Snell.

Boras is out of his mind at that price tag. Gerrit Cole is our ace, he’s proven himself in pinstripes and Snell shouldn’t be paid more than Cole. So he’s a two time Cy Young winner, cool story….I don’t care. I hope Hal holds firm at that price, at this point other teams haven’t been willing to pony up YET so the Yankees don’t need to outbid themselves here.

Now Boras is giving a deadline of 7-10 days. Sure, Snell wants to report to his new home and start facing live hitters so he can be ready for the start of the season. Makes sense, I get it but that doesn’t mean the Yankees need to jump and suddenly pay more money. Thanks for the deadline, Boras, noted but again…. I don’t care.

Reports are the Los Angeles Angels and San Francisco Giants are now in the mix. The Angels have needed pitching for years now, that’s another soap opera and the Giants are suddenly in desperate need of pitching, especially if they hope to even stand a chance against the Dodgers.

If you had hopes of seeing Snell at Spring Training…..that looks less likely right now. This could be one time that Boras has to “settle” for another deal and honestly, I wouldn’t mind seeing that.
