Not at that price, given his health problems. He suffers from back problems. Those do not get better with age.

Its nice to see other, respected GMs having trouble like this with agents. For those who thought less of NH because of the Boras/Alvarez incident, let this serve as a cautionary tale. For every GM, at some point he is held hostage by the agent's willingness to play him.

Ned Colletti is no "respected GM."
