.05 x (3 x 27,000,000) = 4,050,000
.05 x (10 x 25,000,000) = 12,500,000
.05 x (8 x 23,000,000) = 9,200,000
There are countless other permutations of the math. Somehow I don’t see how Scott Boras can end up losing on this one. Unless he was fired, of course.
If Boras is still Rodriguez’ agent, and Alex re-ups with the Yankees, then Boras went from a guaranteed $4M agent’s fee to a much higher guaranteed fee (over many more years, for sure). He’s locked in business, all because of shrewd contract writing several years ago. I imagine there are a number of columnists licking their chops, pre-writing those columns in which they have a field day with Boras as having "lost" if Rodriguez comes back for "only" a couple of hundred million. The only legitimate way they can call Boras a "loser" is if he is either fired or Alex signs a contract for pennies more than his previous deal.
