    A-Rod Talking To Yanks
    In a development that is being called a "tremendous hit" and an "embarrassment" to agent Scott Boras, Alex Rodriguez is back at the bargaining table with the Yankees.  Boras is reportedly not directly involved in the negotiations, which are expected to result in a new contract for Rodriguez imminently. Beyond Boras, the story is replete with intriguing angles: While one report says the third party Rodriguez reached out to the  Yankees through was "common friends at Goldman Sachs," another says it was Mitch Modell; also, the reasons for Rodriguez' change of heart range from his efforts to repair his image to concern for his business interests; finally, the Yankees holding firm in their stance with Rodriguez is seen as a sign of  strength for the new Yankees regime.
