......The Marketing of Johnny Damon.......sounds like a movie......

NY Times:

"Scott Boras, Damon's agent, loves to analyze numbers and then unfurl them to help his clients score gigantic numbers for free-agent contracts.

"In the blue free agent binder that Boras presents to teams interested in Damon, there are 10 sections filled with hundreds of numbers to emphasize why Damon is desirable...In it are sections titled 'Best Leadoff Man in Baseball'; Most Durable Active Player in Major Leagues/Deserving of a 7-Plus-Year Contract'; 'Better Than Future Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson.'"
