But as far as what numbers are being bandied about, Del Zotto had nothing to disclose.

“I have to be honest, I don’t know,” Del Zotto said. “I just want something sooner or later. I don’t have any numbers for you guys.”
Either he's lying or he's really being foolish. I would never trust an agent to negotiate a deal without knowing on an hourly basis what the numbers are. The agent is going to use the holdout as a negotiating tactic, as they always do - but if your DZ and you really want to be in camp you can put a stop to that and not necessarily take a hit on the the deal.

But who knows, if I was in the situation and it was a matter of getting an extra 500K or more a year by letting an agent handle it (to a certain extent)... who am I to criticize. I would definitely want to know all the options and the full breadth of the negotiations if I were him though, but sometimes it doesnt seem that way with some players.
