Iglesias Goes To Dark Side—Hires Scott Boras
Jose Iglesias has switched agencies and is now being represented by Uber-Agent Scott Boras. Chalk up another reason why the Jake Peavy trade was a wise one—even though Iglesias is not eligible for free agency for another five years. Anytime you can avoid dealing with Boras and his three-ring binder madness, it's a plus. Get ready for that "binder" treatment when Boras starts shopping Jacoby Ellsbury this winter—as the center-fielder continues to perform well (albeit not at his 2011 levels) in his "walk" year. And don't rule out 'Jacoby in pinstripes' if The Evil Ones recover enough dough from the A-Fraud fiasco.
