Free-Agent right-hander Kyle Lohse signed a one-year contract with the St. Louis Cardinals. Lohse, who in the past was rumored to go to the Mets after the team offered him a contract, waited forever to find a team.
Of course, that will always happen when you have Scott Boras as an agent. Boras, though, has lost support from several players as of late. Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez negotiated his huge contract with the Yankees this past off-season on his own terms, leaving Boras out of any talks. Another example from the past is when current Tigers OF Gary Sheffield fired Boras because he accused Boras of getting greedy. He accused Boras of trying to give Sheffield a short contract to get more money directly to Boras, while Sheffield obviously wanted a long-term deal.
