It was a little tongue-in-cheek because of the early reports that the Cubs were more interested in Arenado than Harper.

I assumed that he wasn't Boras client, and it looks like he dumped him in 2015. Many Cubs fans think this gives us hope of extending Bryant, but is there any history of Boras arbitration-level guys extending instead of hitting free agency?


Strasburg, but if I remember correctly, it includes opt-outs that make the extension more of an arbitration buyout and not much else (other than a security blanket if injury/decline hit hard).

Yes. Strasburg leaps to mind, but I think there's been one or two other lower profile guys.

This anal fissure of an offseason is the gift that keeps on giving - Kimbrel about to sign with the Brewers according to some twitter rumors.

5/100 (2 FA years bought out). He’ll be a FA at age 30 or 31.
