another day...another story

While Boras has confirmed that he filed paperwork with the Yankees early Sunday, he has denied leaking the news of Rodriguez's decision to upstage the finale of Boston-Colorado series. He said he only announced that Rodriguez would become a free agent after news broke without his knowledge and he received inquiries from multiple media outlets.

Amid reports that Rodriguez is seeking a 12-year, $360 million deal, Boras said he has yet to discuss specific economics with any major league club. He plans to attend the general managers' meetings in Orlando, Fla., next week on what he called an information-gathering mission.

But team executives were told, sources say, that in order to arrange a meeting with Rodriguez, they would have to be prepared to make an extension offer that would take the third baseman's deal up to a total value of $350 million. That means that the offer the Yankees intended to propose would have been more than $100 million short.

and the Yankees offer was 100 million less than A-Rod would consider

Well, I hope the Sox are drawing up their 175 year/2 million yearly deal right now.
