How about the Miami Dolphins? I certainly did not expect the team to make it back to .500 on the season. Unfortunately, my […]

Navigating Francisco Rodriguez’s No-Trade Clause

When I first heard that Francisco (K-Rod) Rodriguez was switching agents from Paul Kinzer of Wasserman Media Group to Scott Boras of Boras Corp., I praised Kinzer for a job well done in his representation of the former New York Mets closer.  After all, Kinzer helped Rodriguez negotiate a 3-year, $37 million deal, which included a very impressive $17.5 […]
