What happens when you become the hottest player on a team with the highest payroll in baseball? Perhaps you ask one of your teammates for Scott Boras’ telephone number. Although, I doubt you really need to ask, as he is basically omnipresent. Yes, he is in Anaheim and New York City at the same time.
On a serious note, Robinson Cano is quickly becoming one of the best second basemen in baseball. He is thinking forward to 2013, the next year that he will likely be a free agent (the Yankees have a 2012 and 2013 option on him for a total of $29 million). Although, Boras very well may sign Cano to a multi-year deal prior to the expiration of his current contract with the team options.
Cano is now a Boras Corp. client. He was formerly represented by Bobby Barad, who must hate to see a client who hit .319 with 29 HR, 41 2B, 109 RBIs, and had 103 runs leave him prior to Cano’s super pay day. Barad will survive, though. He still represents some guy named Evan Longoria.
