<< So Rodriguez tried something nobody could have envisioned him doing. He went behind the back of the most influential agent in baseball, Scott Boras, to maneuver his way back into Yankee pinstripes. >>

How could he possibly have gone "behind the back of the most influential agent in baseball" when it's been widely reported that said agent has been with him in Miami for the past few weeks?

BORAS HAS RUINED THE GAME. I NOW RESPECT AROD FOR STEPPING UP AND BEING REAL ABOUT A CONTRACT. STILL WAY TO MUCH MONEY!

glad he's back. super player. productive bat, but share of revenue generated fromhis home run chase. come on Boras...sit back and collect your 10%($27.5 million) and be done. you represent sooo many ball players. stop needling teams just to get one up on them.
Boras and Rosenhaus are meant for eachother...they're both horrible.

although if i were a ballplayer...yes, i'd have him represnt me !

Why would he agree to so "little" money? Not that $275,000,000 isn't a lot of money. It is. If you divide it over the 10yrs it averages out to $27.5 mil a year. I wonder what the value of $27.5 mil/yr will be in years 6-10. Will the top players in the league who didn't sign longterm contracts be making more like $40 mil/yr?
If he was as greedy as everyone claims then he would only lock in a 3 or 5yr contract at most.

Yankees are a joke. Hvae some balls and tell arod to F off. I can't believe he opts out for more money, that greedy scumbag, the yankees say they won't negotiate, now like little bitches they are going to give him another absurd contract? Are the fans even going to cheer this guy?
