Holliday’s agent, Scott Boras, although he seemed shocked by Urbon’s contention, declined to be dragged into a public debate about Bay vs. Holliday when reached Saturday night by phone. But Boras made his feelings clear during the ALCS when he said, “Holliday is the only young complete free agent player available.”

Boras provided statistical data Sunday to back up his claims and contended that the more apt comparison for Holliday is Mark Teixeira, who received a $180 million, eight-year Yankees contract last winter. Boras said, “[Holliday’s] numbers the past three years are nearly identical to Mark Teixeira’s numbers” going into his free agency.
