I might have been one of those people, but its not because I thought he was stupid or arrogant. Guy has been, along with Marvin Miller, the most influential figure in sports and union representation, in the last 50 years. Guy basically established free agency as a concept in 1977.

He's also an attorney/counselor representing his clients. His client doesn't want to play hardball (wisely) and he doing what he can to get the best deal possible for his clients within the negotiation limitations set by the client. Thats how a true professional does it. He also realizes he doesn't necessarily have the same negotiating position he did with the MLBPA.
