NEW YORK (AP) -A-Rod is adding some Hollywood glitz to his management team.
Alex Rodriguez hired Guy Oseary, who has worked with Madonna and Lenny Kravitz, to be his manager. Oseary is not a registered baseball agent, and Scott Boras remains A-Rod's representative on baseball matters.
Rodriguez said last week he had spoken just once with Boras since the agent notified the New York Yankees that A-Rod was opting out of his contract. The slugger then negotiated a new $275 million, 10-year deal with the team without Boras. After the outline of the deal was agreed to, Boras drafted the contract with the club.
``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 as a true visionary,'' Rodriguez said in a statement issued by Richard Rubenstein.
Richard Rubenstein has represented A-Rod's foundation and is the son of Yankees spokesman Howard Rubenstein.
Rodriguez called his opting out ``a mistake'' and a ``huge debacle.''
``Our goals were not aligned,'' he said, referring to Boras.
A-Rod last Thursday that he didn't think there was a need to replace Boras as his baseball agent.
``I signed a 10-year deal. I'm going to be 42 years old. I don't think there's going to be anymore baseball after. I mean, at this point, it's all academic,'' Rodriguez said. ``At the end of the day, Scott and I have a 16-year history. I've known him half my life. He's built enough equity with me that, you know, I respect and appreciate a lot of the things he's done for me.''
Boras declined comment on the addition of Oseary, whose hiring was first reported by Daily Variety.
