Report: A-Rod Drops Boras

According to reports from Variety Magazine, Alex Rodriguez has fired Scott Boras and will have entertainment agent Guy Oseary represent him. Oseary represents names like Madonna, Lenny Kravitz and David Blaine.
Guy Oseary, the former record company executive whose personal management stable includes Madonna, has signed his first athlete, Alex Rodriguez.

The New York Yankees third baseman, considered by many to be the game's top player, has signed with Oseary, who personally manages Lenny Kravitz and magician David Blaine in addition to Madonna. He is also a partner in Untitled Entertainment, whose clients include Hilary Swank, Penelope Cruz, Naomi Watts and Ashton Kutcher.

"As I embark on this new chapter in my career, I know that I have found in Guy Oseary someone who is aligned with my interests and who has earned a lot of respect in the entertainment industry," Rodriguez said in a statement.
For A-Rod this is a good move, in that it buries the source of his most recent controversy - Boras' supposed spearheading the opting out of his contract during the deciding game of the world series.

However, let's hope Rodriguez decides to use Oseary's services to advance himself both professionally and as a person - and not return to the artificial, packaged commodity he perpetrated until the 2007 spring training which saw him come clean about his chilly relationship with former best buddy Derek Jeter.
