It's a heck of a leap to say MLB revenues have increased so dramatically in part because of agents. Is he trying to say fans come to the park to watch millionaires more than they did when the players were paid in the single-digit thousands?

His logic escapes me.

Well, if the owners use the salaries negotiated by the agents as their excuse for cranking up ticket prices and rights fees (and they have), then Boras has a case. Revenues are income, not profits. What he fails to mention is that driving revenues up that way is really only good for him and his clients, not so much for us fans. I don't know how good it is for the owners. Certainly it's been good for the Yankees, but I doubt it's been very helpful to the Royals or Pirates.
