Fresh off negotiating multi-year contract extensions for clients Jay Bruce and Ricky Nolasco, agent Matt Sosnick fielded some questions from Jason Rosenberg of It’s About the Money.
The entire interview is worth a gander, as is Rosenberg’s first — and much lengthier — interview with Sosnick from 2008. However, I found this succinct answer to be rather entertaining.
IIATMS: More of a macro question… it has been quite the memorable offseason with Boston’s two huge acquisitions, Phillies’ surprise acquisition of Cliff Lee and the WhiteSox double dip of Dunn and Konerko. Detroit, too, has been aggressive while the Yanks have come up uncharacteristically empty. What takeaways do you have from the 2010 offseason?
MS: I think this off-season shows that the game is very healthy from a financial standpoint.
You know, sometimes you don’t need an emoticon. You can bet Sosnick was smiling ear-to-ear when he wrote that.
