I always wondered if Boras kept some kind of kitty, or gets them some kind of insurance to for guys like Soto.   You're right, the risk/reward equation doesn't play make sense to each individual player.

I’m positive he has insurance. Just don’t know how much. Like if he gets hurt does it pay out 9 figures. And what if he doesn’t get hurt, but just doesn’t perform?

Lloyds of London insures pro athletes ("loss of value" insurance).  Funny that a 20 year old playing a game represents greater financial risk than a supertanker that sails through war zones.  Funny old world.
