Bees swarm Boras' suite in Anaheim

Aug 31, 2009, 8:20 AM EST

It’s almost as if someone is trying to tell Scott Boras something:

A swarm of bees invaded his dugout-level suite at Angel Stadium  on Sunday, though Boras didn’t appear to be at the game between Los Angeles and the Oakland Athletics.

The
bees occupied his front-row seats directly behind home plate for the
first two innings. They were removed with the help of a vacuum during
the third inning.

After the game, Boras circulated a three-inch binder to every team explaining how the bees are every bit as valuable as Albert Pujols and Johan Santana combined.  Jon Heyman then reported that the bees would swarm in either Japan or the independent leagues next year if necessary. Finally, just before midnight, Boras convinced Dave Dombrowski to sign the the bees to a major league contract worth $10.2 million.

Say what you want, but the guy is amazing.

    The guy is not amazing, hes just very adept at applying P.T. Barnum’s philosphy to all the owners, “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

    The guy is amazingly greedy.

    I know. When will someone stop him from attempting to get fair market value for his clients from those philanthropist baseball owners. He’s just a parasite, trying to steal money from people who add real value to the world, like hedge fund operators and people who inherited money from their dad.

    Psh. I remember when bees signed for $15,000 and were *grateful* for it. These spoiled superstar bees today don’t know how good they have it.
