Word is that Philadelphia has dropped out of the bidding on Kyle Lohse. The sticking point with the Phillies was the Lohse camp, headed by agent Scott Boras, insisting on a fourth years and the Phillies refusing to give more than three. Boras claims to have a bidder at four years which is believed to be the Mets. I don’t get it. The guy is 63-74 with a 4.82 ERA over his career and hasn’t had a winning season since 2003 when he went 14-11. How is he able to demand a fourth year and an annual salary of around $10 million? Baseball is a weird business.
