REPORT: Jordan Montgomery Shockingly Fires Scott Boras After Free Agent Debacle … Is The Super-Agent’s Downfall Upon Us??

It’s no secret that things didn’t go according to plan for super-agent Scott Boras and his clients this past offseason. 

Boras engaged in a staring contest with MLB owners and general managers and ultimately it was him who blinked.

That doesn’t necessarily mean that the owners should be applauded. 

After all, many people feel that the league is taking a turn for the worse and the concentrated effort to lower the bar on contracts is not healthy for the future of the sport. 

Maybe it is. Maybe it isn’t. But that’s a conversation for another day. 

What we do know is Boras’ clients are not happy. 

Look no further than World Series hero Jordan Montgomery who just fired Boras as his agent. 

After sitting on the open market all offseason after a dominant World Series run with the Texas Rangers, Montgomery ended up signing a one-year, $25 million contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Needless to say, he wasn’t too thrilled with that deal…

Expected to hit the open market once again after this season, Montgomery has hired Wasserman’s Joel Wolfe and Nick Chanock as his new agents. 

The 31-year-old Montgomery was originally seeking a long-term deal, potentially worth nine figures when he hit the market this past offseason.

Although, there was interest from teams such as the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, the lucrative offer he was searching for never came. 

Montgomery was one of the “Boras Four” who were expected to command large contracts, especially following the Los Angeles Dodgers historic signing of Shohei Ohtani. 

Not that Montgomery, Cody Bellinger, Blake Snell or Matt Chapman are on Ohtani’s level in any way, shape or form – but the two-way Japanese superstar signing a 10-year, $700 million deal didn’t hurt matters. (Or so we thought.)

Bellinger, the 2019 NL MVP, ended up resigning with the Chicago Cubs on a three-year, $80 million deal with opt-outs.

Snell, a two-time Cy Young award winner, signed a two-year, $62 million deal with the San Francsico Giants. That deal also includes a valuable opt-out. 

As for Chapman, he ended up signing a three-year, $54 million deal with the same Giants. 

What are your thoughts on Montgomery firing Boras?

Do you think Boras has been served a little humble pie in a way?

Is Monty’s move a sign of things to come?

Or do you think contracts in baseball will soon boom once again – with Boras as the face of it???
