Kendry Morales hires Scott Boras

Feb 13, 2010, 3:00 PM EST

777-2.jpgScott Boras lost Felipe Lopez as a client this week, but he gained a potentially more lucrative one in the form of Angels’ first baseman Kendry Morales, who has decided to leave the Hendricks brothers behind.

Morales, who signed a six-year, $4.5 million contract with the Angels in 2005, will be arbitration-eligible for the first time after the 2010 season. The 26-year-old first baseman batted .306/.355/.569 with 34 home runs and 108 RBI last season, filling the shoes of Boras-client Mark Teixeira quite admirably.

According to Jorge Arangure Jr. of ESPN.com, Boras is willing to discuss a long-term contract extension with the Angels. Guy moves fast. Sometimes.

By the way, Boras had some rather nice parting words for his former client Lopez:

“We wish Felipe well. He’s a fine player,” Boras said. “We understand
that a player gets frustrated when we contact all 30 teams numerous
times and there is not a starting job for him.”

Right.

    Really says all you need to know about a guy who would want to be represented by such a vile scumbag.
    Felipe Lopez just became one of my favorite players!

    So Long Mr Morales,even tho you are one of my favorite players on the Angle, but your agent always has a hard time with the Angels.

    So Boras loses Lopez and gets Morales. What’s next? Winning the lottery?

    I had little opinion of Boras until that quote. What a scumbag piece of petty snot sucking filth.

    The only thing I can figure is Kendry can’t read. Hello, ask Damon and a few others how great , and popular Boras is with the team owners, and general managers.I think you will be wishing you’d stayed with the Hendricks brothers. Good luck !
