Baseballs most prominent agent, Scott Boras, openly criticized the Toronto Blue Jays stagnant offseason on Sunday, likening the team to a "car with a huge engine that is impeded by a big corporate stop sign." Speaking to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Boras, the man who represents the likes of Texas Rangers slugger Prince Fielder, 2013 AL Cy Young winner Max Scherzer of the Detroit Tigers and Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper, places the blame on general manager Alex Anthopouloss failure to dip into the free agent market on the shoulders of Jays ownership, a group Boras deems "a successful and committed ownership that needs to give their baseball people financial flexibility." "There is no one who has the asset base of Rogers," Boras said to Rosenthal. "[Torontos] a premium city. Its a premium owner with equity. And its a very, very good team that with additional premium talent could become a contending team." Outside of catcher Dioner Navarro, the Jays, tipped to be after free agent pitching and a second baseman, have remained entirely inactive while the likes of Ubaldo Jimenez, A.J. Burnett and Masahiro Tanaka found new clubs. Because the team has two protected first-round picks, the Jays seemingly would have leverage when it comes to compensation-eligible free agents. Anthopoulos, for his part, defended ownership on being informed of Borass remarks. "Our ownership has been outstanding and given us all the resources we need," said Anthopoulos. The Blue Jays and Boras have traditionally had a frosty relationship. Borass very first major contract showdown was between the Jays and reliever Bill Caudill in 1984. After acquiring the pitcher from the Oakland As, Boras negotiated a five-year extension for his client at $1.5 million a season that made him the highest paid player on the team. Caudill flamed out due to injury and was released in 1986 after pitching only just over 105 innings for the team. The acrimony from the deal lingered. In 2009, the Jays drafted lefty starter James Paxton of Ladner, BC. The Jays could not come to an agreement with Paxton, who was being advised by Boras at the time, and he chose to head back to the University of Kentucky to play for its baseball team. Blue Jays president Paul Beeston called into question the actual nature of Paxtons relationship with Boras. "Because it was Scott, the way you deal, you deal through him," Beeston told the Globe and Mail at the time. "You dont deal through the family." The NCAA allows its athletes to have "family advisers," but forbids them from having agents, as it would compromise their amateur status. Due to Beestons comments, the NCAA launched an investigation into Paxtons arrangement with Boras. Paxton did not participate with the investigation out of fear of being suspended by the school. Kentucky, fearing that the school would face sanctions if it allowed Paxton to play whilst under investigation, filed a motion that allowed Paxton to keep his scholarship and remain part of the team, but did not let him actually play in any games. Part of that filing included the suggestion that Paxton breached the "no agent" rule. Paxton, now a member of the Seattle Mariners, was eventually declared ineligible and left the school for a Texas team in the independent league. Boras currently represents two of the last three compensation free agents on the market (with starter Ervin Santana the other) in Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales. The Jays dont appear to have any interest in Morales, but could explore the possibility of slotting Drew in at second base. The 30-year-old former Red Sox shortstop has never played a game at second in his career. The Blue Jays open their exhibition schedule on Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies in Dunedin, Florida.

"It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said.WINNIPEG -- Winnipeg head coach Mike OShea isnt just disappointed that the Blue Bombers lost. OShea disliked the Blue Bombers performance in a 26-3 to the Edmonton Eskimos on Thursday in front of Winnipegs largest home crowd of the season. "The biggest disappointment, besides teammates thinking they let down teammates, is having a crowd like that and putting that kind of effort forward," said OShea, as the Bombers fell to 3-1. The crowd at Investors Group Field topped 30,000 for the first time this season with 30,976 in attendance to watch the Eskimos claim sole possession of first place in the CFL West at 4-0. A scrambling Mike Reilly may have been the difference maker. He rushed for a team leading 96 yards in a game where defences on both sides were making life hard for offences. "It was a long night for both offences, I think," said the Eskimos quarterback, sacked four times to five for Winnipegs Drew Willy. Reilly was held to one offensive touchdown, with another scored by the defence and the rest of Edmontons points coming from Grant Shaw field goals. Winnipeg had only one field goal from Liram Hajrullahu and he hit a post on another try. "Both those defences are really good," said Reilly. "Even in the first half we had some good drives that we didnt finish off. So, certainly, we like to come away with touchdowns rather than field goals but the way our defence is playing right now, its enough to get the win." Slotback Fred Stamps, one of the teams best and most consistent receivers, was injured in the game and coach Chris Jones said later he was still being evaluated. He left the field after the game on a stretcher with an oxygen mask on and was taken to a Winnipeg hospital for precautionary testing. "It was a physical night for both sides and again our quarterback got tested a time too many (but) again hes a physical big quarterback and thats what he does, hes a winner," said Jones. "They were 3-0 for a reason. Theyre a good football team and theyve got great schemes and things of that nature and we had to go out and earn that win." OShea said the way Reilly slipped tackles time and time again showed the Bombers his power, something they knew he had workked on in the off-season.dddddddddddd "Yeah hes strong and tough," said OShea. "We underestimated him and give him that credit and when we look at the film well be disappointed we didnt squeeze a little harder and bring him down." That said, the defence kept the Bombers in the game. Winnipegs offence had the ball for just 21:34 to Edmontons 38:26. But in the first and final quarters, when the Eskimos scored 20 of their points, the Bombers had the ball for less than seven of those minutes. "We never got a rhythm going," said Willy. "We left our defence out there. They played really well. Anytime you dont possess the ball very much its tough to put points on the board." He was wearing an ice bag on his left ankle but said he wasnt hurt that badly and it wont affect his ability to play next week in B.C. Edmontons only touchdown in almost 50 minutes of football came from the defence on a first-quarter interception, carried in by former Bomber bad boy Odell Willis. But despite some solid drives (Edmonton had 24 first downs to Winnipegs 11) all the Eskimos offence could muster were field goals until the fourth quarter. With Stamps injured, Reilly finally connected with A.J. Guyton with a 13-yard throw to make it 20-3 with about 10 minutes left, the first and only touchdown by the offence. He said Stamps would have drawn more coverage. The Bomber offence had hardly touched the ball until Nic Grigsby gave them a first down with just over two minutes left in the second quarter. Willy followed with a 50-yard throw to Clarence Denmark but he was sacked on the next play and Denmark couldnt hold it in the end zone on a touchdown try, forcing Winnipeg to settle for a field goal. Notes: The last time an unbeaten Winnipeg and Edmonton tussled for first in the West early in the season was in 1961. Edmonton won that game but Winnipeg went on to win the Grey Cup. ... Zach Anderson had two of Winnipegs four sacks and picked up what initially looked like a fumble deep in Edmonton turf on Thursday, although it was ruled down by contact. Willie Jefferson had two of Edmontons four sacks. Regular punter Mike Renaud hurt himself during the warmup leaving Hajrullahu to handle punts as well.
