Mark Teixeira is the latest Yankee to fire Scott Boras. (Can;t remember the name of the other one, but I believe he's an infielder). Teixeira gathered the Yankee beat writers around his locker in the clubhouse this morning and made the announcement that he had decided to cut ties with the agent who negotiated the eight year, $180 million contract that brought Teixeira to the Yankees in 2008.

"There's lots of reasons,'' Teixeira said. "There's no reason to get into specifics right now. I've known Scott for 12 years and sometimes business relationships just run their course.''

Teixeira said he had been considering making the change for a year and has not yet hired a new agent. "There's plenty of time for that,'' said Teixeira, who will be paid $22.5 million a year every season between now and 2016.
