I just can't believe someone can turn down that kind of doe!
well, if his agent is that one dude (can't remember his name) that represents guys like Arod then this would make sense. That agent is more in charge than anybody. He's an a-hole.The Dodgers had already offered him 4 deals before this one that he turned down and NO other team has made him offers ... In these economic times, it's ridiculous, even for pro-athletes to refuse that type of money.
It really makes you wonder who really pulled this string, Him or his agent.
Is the agent saying "Lets say no, we can get more" or is he saying "Manny you have to take this!" ...
Its obvious tho, one of the two is entirely insane when it comes to business.
You would LOVE him if he was your agent, he get's his players more money than anyone (not just the great players, but the up and coming players)Manny and a-rod have the same agent. Scott Boras is his name. I don't like him one bit...
Wow I don't even watch baseball and I know that's a dumb move! The guy was only here a couple of months and he was an instant fan favorite, you'd see his jersey everywhere you went, man that guys is out of his mind, I'd take 45 mil for two years lol
You wouldn't think it was dumb if you were the one that was gonna be getting 5 more million in mostly guaranteed money.
You really think that will happen? Isn't he like a pain to manage? I still think 45 million is a lot to refuse whether is guaranteed or not. All he has to do is play ball and get his money.he just wants a guaranteed contract so if news pops up about him and roid usage he can atleast be guaranteed that money
