Well, not quite. But baseball's über-agent does say this about the locally revered Cardinals general manager, who lowballed Boras' client Jeff Weaver this past off-season:

“You have to respect that teams have a right to make their own decisions. [But] here’s a GM who never played the game saying, ‘We’re going to go with our young guys,’ and I go, ‘You can’t.’ The Cardinals not signing Jeff Weaver is how you don’t win divisions, and my prediction is the St. Louis Cardinals won’t win their division this year.”
