Boras' ploy

Sources close to Arod say Boston is #1 on his list of teams. Don't worry. It's all a facade by Scottie Boras. First, why would the Sawx want Arod when they have the World Series MVP on their team at the same position who would cost a helluva lot less? Second, he's the most hated athlete in Boston (yes, even more than Jeter). Third, if Arod thinks New York fans are fickle, wait till he plays a month in Fenway. Fourth, I wouldn't be surprised if the 'source' is in fact Boras trying to scare the Yankees into bidding on Arod when they said they wouldn't. Without the richest team in baseball bidding for his client, he won't receive as much as he hopes. Fifth, if he does think the Yanks are truly out of it, then having the second richest team (supposedly) bidding also serves this purpose.
