Detroit's Pudge Perspective 

Jerry Green of the Detroit News reports that the Tigers weren't nearly as close as people were led to believe to signing Ivan Rodriguez. Says Green:
...on Friday night, (Scott) Boras (Rodriguez's @!#$ of an agent) told The News' Tom Gage that a contract length had been agreed upon with the Tigers. That leaves just the economics to be negotiated. Just the economics!

So where did Boras come up with his forty million dollars figure? I would love to see the Mariners sign Pudge, but they need to proceed with caution when dealing with Boras. Sports agency is in the same category as event ticket brokerage and the towing industry when it comes to fairness and honesty, and nobody does more to cement that reputation than Scott Boras.
