Do They Handle Direct-to-Video Distribution Too?

If he weren't hitting .319/.398/.592 some might wonder if A-Rod's head was in the game:
The William Morris Agency bolstered its sports management business Monday by signing Alex Rodriguez as a client. The New York Yankees star and frequent tabloid piƱata will continue to use Scott Boras as his baseball agent and Guy Oseary as his manager.

The global talent agency, which represents Hollywood heavyweights like Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, will work to expand Mr. Rodriguez’s portfolio of corporate endorsements. Of particular interest to Mr. Rodriguez, who is not likely to seek another baseball contract, are foreign deals.

Foreign deals? For relaxing times, make it Suntory time!

Will be good for his soon-to-be-released sex video with Madonna! Will also help finance that pending divorce settlement.

Now that I live on the West Coast, I've become aware of how lucrative foreign endorsements are. I imagine A-Rod is looking at Tiger's $ 40M per year in endorsements and is wondering why the most any baseball player gets is $ 3.5M. "Mr. Baseball" jokes aside, he could do very well overseas.
