Well, of course.

Just read on MLBTraderumors that Scott Boras is now representing Jose Valverde.

To me, this signifies one of two things:

First, this is the first official sign that Valverde honestly still believes closers are worth big money, and by golly, he’s a Closer.

Second, Boras loves dealing with Detroit, so Dombrowski will resign Valverde to a 4-year, $20 million dollar deal. With an option for a fifth year for $8 million.

Fingers crossed!
