Boras dislikes the new draft mechanism

"There was all forms of artificial behavior in the draft,'' Boras told USA TODAY Sports. "The purpose of the draft is that it's supposed to create parity in the game. You want teams with the greatest needs to get the best available talent. "That has not been achieved in this draft. "It's created a mockery.'' Boras believes Appel was the best player available this past Monday but the Astros refused to take him. I'd much rather have Correa than Appel. But that's just me -- and the Astros, the Twins, the Mariners, etc. UPDATE from David: I looked at this article as generally being a positive for the Pirates. It suggests that Boras doesn't have any crazy negotiating ploy up his sleeve and understands the reality that the money he wants just isn't going to be there for Appel.
