In fact the 'Nation" was very supportive of the move even though it

The only noise about this subject is just reverberations from some

they are releasing the info,{if it was the sox, others got the letter too}
to screw manny,
they were more than tolerant of manny, and he burned them. now they are
burning back.
such relevations won't enhance his value at the negotiation.
and you can bet boras was whispering in manny's ear, boras only gets paid
when manny gets a new contract, he more than anybody wanted manny out of

howard slusher a vilified agent in is day used to harge $400 an hour, this
fee type took his intersts out of the deal. he got what he got anyway he
wasn't negotiating for himself like boras and other percentage based agents
