I think this is a positive sign for the Tigers. Kenny Rogers ended his relationship with Scott Boras and he’s said he’ll represent himself in contract negotiations. He also reiterated how he’d like to come back to Detroit and that also mirrors the Alex Rodriguez situation, who has all but re-signed with the Yankees.
It’s interesting seeing these players show a little bit of loyalty to the teams that they’d prefer to play for. Boras’ incentive is to look for the biggest deal but it looks like some players are lashing back in order to play for the teams they want to, not neccesarily the ones who throw around the most money.
