Scott Boras is Having a Fantastic Week

Kevin Kinkead - December 12, 2019

Anthony Rendon signed with the Angels Wednesday night on a seven-year deal worth $245 million. That amounts to $35 million a year, a higher AAV than both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, who joined the Phils and Padres last season following high-profile free agency periods.

It was the third straight day a Scott Boras player locked in a monolithic deal, a total of more than $800 million dollars now in offseason contracts this week alone:

Glen Macnow Shares a Lenny Dykstra Story

Kevin Kinkead - December 5, 2019

Today the 94 WIP Morning Show hung up twice on Lenny Dykstra, first during an argument with Angelo Cataldi and the second time after an exchange with Ray Didinger, who was in the studio with the regular crew.

The subject of the latter spat was $7,000 that Didinger claims he’s owed by Nails, after writing two stories for his magazine, The Player, at some point in the past.
