As the Yankees try to make the playoffs, Alex Rodriguez is trying to buff his battered image. According to The Wall Street Journal, he has signed with the famed William Morris Agency.
At last count, A-Rod now has three agents as he is also represented by Scott Boras and Guy Oseary. No word on their status.
(UPDATE, 12:58 p.m.: The AP cleared this up. Oseary brokered the deal with William Morris. So everybody remains in the mix for Alex, Inc.)
This statement from A-Rod: “Partnering with William Morris will enable me to broaden the scope of my career in creative and innovative ways. I’m excited to see what we will be able to accomplish together, both domestically and abroad.”
Here’s an innovative way: Hit in the playoffs and get into the World Series. That would fix everything.
