Nice interview of Scott Boras by CNBC’s “Sports Biz with Darren Rovell”. He talks to Boras about perceived worth that A-Rod might bring to a franchise, and it’s interesting stuff. Boras says:
Interestingly enough, after the Yankees had won three World Series in four years in 2000, after achieving that and beating the Mets, their attendance went down by over 250,000 fans. What you’re talking about is that a club that prior to Alex arriving drew its best in history, 3.4 million and last year, after four years of being there, the Yankees have now reached a record attendance where in Yankee history they’ve never reached 4 million and done it twice resulting in 4.2 million fans.
So what do you think will happen with A-Rod? Stay with the Yanks? Go to another club and play SS? Will he get more than $30 million per year? End up on either side of Chicago? Will he get 8 years? 10?
