Here are the details from the Sports Agent Blog, but clearly Scott Boras doesn’t take on a client unless he’s ready to renegotiate … and I think we all know the tenuous, often bitter relationship the Astros and Boras have had in the past:

While Nick Swisher did not sign Scott Boras (he ended up going to Dan Lozano), Michael Bourn has made the move to Boras Corp.  Bourn was previously represented by SFX.  Prior to SFX, Bourn was represented by Beverly Hills Sports Council.  Some guys really have a problem picking an agent and sticking with him.

Boras gets Bourn at a great stage of his career.  He is going into his 2nd season as an arbitration eligible player and should be heading towards the most productive years of his career, as he is only 28-years-old.  Bourn has already established himself as a great fielder, racking up 2 Gold Gloves, and is a speed demon, owning the stolen base record for the past 2 seasons.

Take a look at this list of Scott Boras clients.  It makes you realize just how powerful he is in the business of baseball.
