All of this is why Boras must be really good -- as Jeff and Doug point out, this is just like the A-Rod deal.  He convinced someone to pay millions more than anyone else was willing to pay.  I really can't fathom how he does it.

  Is it not a major concession to lose the extra years? Believe me, I agree 100% with you it was idiotic, but he might have been able to garner a 3-year deal out of the Cubs or someone else. The Tigers admitted they were going to overpay to get him-- trust me, that guy did not want to go to Detroit and Bo knew it.

      The clause makes all the sense in the world and is truly a major concession on his side, but the question is the amount of money that the contract adds up to if he plays throughout the term.
    Major concession???  There was no other team interested in paying him anything near that amount - even for one year, let alone 7.  It strikes me as a no-brainer.  If he really is unable to play - he still walks away with 12 million dollars.
