Argument Against A-Rod
There is an extremely well-written piece at the Hardball Times by John Brattain titled “Battling Boras“, that I highly suggest you read. In a nutshell, it is Brattain’s response to several of the outrageous claims made by Scott Boras in touting his most expensive client — and by the end of the article you can see how Alex Rodriguez is NOT worth $300M. For example, would you pay Chipper Jones that kind of money? Yet, looking at the recent numbers, Chipper compares very closely to A-Rod. Go and read it for yourself.
