Scott Boras' Waterloo, Part 2? Alvarez Signs
Looks like the Pirates and overall #2 pick Pedro Alvarez have come to an agreement after all. The deal, as reported in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, calls for a four-year major-league contract worth $6.355M.
But one source indicated that a signed contract between the Pirates and Alvarez likely will quash a related grievance filed by the union against commissioner Bud Selig's office, offering a sign that all concerned have been duly informed of this development.It's unclear from the article whether Boras was involved in the final round of negotiations.
