Camelback Ranch – March 21st

Felipe Lopez Cans Scott Boras

Felipe Lopez Cans Scott Boras

    According to multiple sources, Felipe Lopez has fired his “Super Agent” Scott Boras, as Boras’ posturing has evidently screwed him out of a few million bucks.  Right about now, who wouldn’t like to have Felipe Lopez at 2B, instead of Belliard and Carroll?  Since Lopez can also play SS, Nick Green would have been [...]
