"I didn't understand him. I wonder how much Scott Boras really told him. There were some really brutal statements that weren't close to being true. Me and Dunc called him over and over again to tell him how much we wanted him. Was really upset with the way that thing went down....(Weaver) called Dunc and asked, 'Why aren't you offering me more years? Dunc told him, 'Because you had a terrible year overall. You have to prove your value.' We set a value for Jeff and it wasn't insulting. What's insulting is when someone outside your organization claims to know more about your organization than you do..... I was aggravated by the situation and it was handled very poorly by Scott Boras."
