I don't like Alex Rodriguez.
I really don't like the New York Yankees.
I really, really don't like Alex Rodriguez playing for the New York Yankees.
But if they work out a deal that screws over noted SOB Scott Boras, then I'm willing to offer both parties my hearty congratulations.
A person close to the Yankees said this morning that Rodriguez, through an intermediary, told the Yankees that he wants to talk with the team about a new contract agreement without the involvement of his agent, Scott Boras. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no deal has been reached.
