In 2011, after he was traded from the Mets to the Brewers, Francisco Rodriguez fired his agents, Paul Kinzer ad Arn Tellem, and hooked up with Scott Boras. He later sued Kinzer and Tellem, claiming that they didn’t properly file the paperwork to activate a no-trade clause K-Rod negotiated for and that the no-trade clause would have included the Brewers on it.
For their part, sources close to Kinzer and Tellem said that the paperwork was filed, and that this was a lot of Boras bluster, with the real dispute being one of form over substance. Moreover, sources told me at the time that Rodriguez wouldn’t have blocked a trade to Milwaukee anyway.
Whatever actually happened is academic now, because the suit has been settled. That leaves Boras to go find K-Rod a big contract now with which to pay his legal fees.
