Yanks talking to A-Rod; Boras not part of dialogue

I don't know how to post links, so I'll do it the old fashioned way:

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3109894

The gist of it is, ARod is talking to the Yankees about a contract, leaving Boras out of the negotiations.  It seems to me like the perfect way to actually gain leverage, but also it acknowledges the fact that very few teams have the financial resources of the Yankees (or claim to; let's not nitpick, please).  So if he negotiates with them, he'll likely get more than he can elsewhere, OR it might encourage other suitors to pay out the nose for him.  No matter what, it's a savvy move for a bigger payday.

Personally, I hope he goes back to the Yankees.  I used to hate them so much, but they've kind of become a bit irrelevant since 2000.  Now my non-Dodgers hatred is directed towards the Red Sox and their most obnoxious fans.  If ARod breaks the homer record, I'd rather he do it as a Yankee, for these reasons:

1. They have such a deep history (unlike, say, the Marlins)
b. He wouldn't be in a Dodger or Red Sox uni
- He wouldn't be consumming over 50% of the Giants payroll along with one (1) Barry Zito
