Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that Carlos Beltran has switched agents, leaving Scott Boras and signing with Dan Lozano.

Ultimately the move probably doesn’t mean a whole lot, since Beltran will likely be going to the highest bidding in free agency either way. Still, it’s interesting considering Boras negotiated the seven-year, $119 million deal that just expired and Beltran is about to hit the open market in search of what will likely be the final big contract of his career.

Lozano also represents Albert Pujols and Jimmy Rollins, among others. And if nothing else the Giants are probably happy about Beltran leaving Boras. Assuming, of course, that they’re interested in re-signing the 34-year-old outfielder.

    I guess he doesn’t want to make as obscenely amounts as possible. I don’t know if what I just wrote is grammatically correct, but you get it.

    My guess is that Boras insists that his clients sit up straight, which Beltran was never happy about.

    More likley, Lozano undercut Boras on the agent’s commission.

    this would have been helpful after the 2004 season….
