Mark Teixeira Cuts Ties With Scott Boras

Just like Alex Rodriguez before him, Mark Teixeira has cut ties with agent Scott Boras, the man who negotiated his $180 million contract with the Yankees. (Don't feel too bad for Boras — as if you'd be physically capable of doing so — as he still gets to collect his cut of Teixeira's deal.) Said Teixeira: "Now that the contract is over with, I don't want to be 'Scott Boras client.' I want to be Mark Teixeira, baseball player, helping this team win championships." (As Rob Neyer points out, that appears to be a telling choice of words.) Though as we see it, this just gives Boras more time to focus on exactly how large a figure he'll be asking for when Robinson Cano hits free agency in 2013. [Star-Ledger, SB Nation]
