Any thoughts on Scott Boras calling out teams "tanking" and the MLB playoffs system that allowed the Braves to win, and how it should be reformed? I was surprised he spoke out. I would think he only cares about money and the biggest contracts he can get his clients, no matter where they play.

Here is the ESPN article and Braves Hall of Famer Chipper Jones had a response to Boras, linked here

While most people I know agreed Scott had a point about the playoff format, one wonders what compelled him to make these comments.
