The baseball world experienced its most significant bummer in recent memory when it was confirmed that the agents involved in a parking lot scuffle Wednesday were not Jay Z and Scott Boras.
Regardless, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports catalogs a scrap between two unidentified player agents as undoubtedly the most exciting moment of MLB’s Winter Meetings so far. Just after noon on Wednesday, two men clashed outside the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. According to witnesses who spoke to Passan under the condition of anonymity, the altercation arose from one agent’s accusations that the other was attempting to poach one of his clients.
“Stay the [expletive] away from my guy!” a witnesses heard one of the agents say.
“I’m gonna burn your [expletive] house down!” the other responded, redefining “hot stove” for decades to come.
With big free agents Robinson Cano, Brian McCann, Mike Napoli, Carlos Beltran, and Jacoby Ellsbury all signing deals before the Winter Meetings, there hasn’t been much excitement left to come out of the talks in Florida. It would appear that even this fight was less than spectacular, with one witness saying, “It was pathetic. It was the worst fight I’ve ever seen.”
Sure, but the client they were fighting over probably feels like the prettiest girl at the ball.
