06:01 AM ET 10.29 | A-Rod has no value to Boston. Classless in his timing, the agent Scott Boras picked last night -- the Red Sox' evening -- to announce that his precious client, Alex, had opted out of his Yankees' deal. The Red Sox don't require A-Rod to complete them because World Series rings have a way of putting closure on fulfillment. "We're celebrating the World Series right now," Theo Epstein said of A-Rod's decision. Why ruin good karma by hiring A-Rod? He was once privately nicknamed the "cooler" by his teammates in Texas for his habit of turning a hot team tepid. He is known for dividing the Yankees' locker in 2006 with his stats-first attitude. He crossed a line on the Yankees' patience by fleeing for free agency.
