So, remember those reports today that the Yankees will only negotiate with Alex Rodriguez as long as he doesn't bring his friend Scott Boras with him?
Michael Weiner, general counsel for the Players Association, told Newsday's Ken Davidoff, “the union has been assured that the Yankees will respect Alex’s decision to designate Scott Boras as his representative.”
Boras was not on the call today in which Rodriguez told Hank & Hal Steinbrenner and other team officials he wanted to come back and was willing to make sacrifices. But he will be a part of the negotiations. He's his agent.
Maybe Joe Torre can now come back, too? Nahhhhhh.
By the way, on a totally random note... Did you see the Pope is coming to Yankee Stadium next April? I was wondering, do you think the religion reporters who follow him around will sit in the press box? Okay, okay, back to A-Rod.
