The whole debacle started, he says, when his agent, Scott Boras, told him the
Yankees didn’t want him anymore. "But they were trying to reach out to you. It's
kind of hard to believe that you were taking Scott Boras' word as gospel when
you had all these other signs coming from Yankee management," Couric remarks.
"You're right," Rodriguez says. Asked why he fell for that, Rodriguez said, "Why
wouldn't I trust my attorney. Most people trust their attorneys. I'm a baseball
player. I'm not an attorney. I've never negotiated a contract."
When your biggest client tells the world that you're a liar, you are pretty much done as a lawyer. Hard to say now if that goes for lawyer/agents like Boras, but it should.
