"With Their Eyes on the Future, the Red Sox Pick Their Man
“We want to build around him,” Chaim Bloom, Boston's chief baseball officer, said of Rafael Devers, the star third baseman who is working to finalize a $331 million deal."
If i understood it correctly, Rafael Devers is working to finalize a $331 million deal. if so what kind of work could he do in this dealing other than just deal?
so wouldn't "dealing" be the right word for this? I mean the Boston's chief is working in fact to get the deal done, Rafael Devers is just kaking the deal, make any sense?
