Marlins | Scott Boras careful with franchise

High profile player agent Scott Boras said he will not bring a franchise player to the Miami Marlins unless they change their policy on no-trade clauses. "I've never had a franchise player there because it was just not something my client wanted to risk," Boras said. "They (Marlins executives) were always upfront about it. They told me, 'We don't do no-trade clauses.' But it's very difficult to sell an expectancy to a player knowing that it might last for only one year. Contractually, what they did was appropriate. It's pretty hard to say they don't have the right to do what they're doing. But if you sign there, it's caveat emptor. The money is secure, but where you play is not."
