Scott Boras has season tickets to see the Dodgers, the Angels, the Padres, the Giants, and the A’s—a full California sweep. In Los Angeles and Anaheim, he also maintains luxury boxes, but, for the most part, wherever he goes he sits, or sometimes stands, in one of the first few rows directly in back of home plate, cell phone at his ear. Boras represents baseball players—among them the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod), the top-grossing athlete in team sports, Barry Zito, the beneficiary of the largest pitching contract ever signed, and the Mets’ Carlos Beltran. Before a game, players will tend to approach the backstop and, in Boras’s telling, thank him for the work he does on their behalf. They needn’t even be his clients. (Ballplayers are firm believers in trickle-down economics.)Esquire, 2009: Alex Rodriguez: Jackpot!
