As A-Rod spoke, a young man in a suit jacket and white shirt sat over to his left watching intently and occasionally checking text messages.

It was Ben Porritt, a Republican political operative who started a crisis-management firm in California. So, for now at least, Porritt seems to have become A-Rod’s chief advisor.

Scott Boras was not in the house today.

For what it’s worth, A-Rod was wearing a red string Kabbalah bracelet. That is supposed to ward off the Evil Eye. Good luck with that.
