    Scott Boros and the Reds?

    Are any current Reds represented by Boros? I know Sardinhas was, but ...is anyone currently employing Boros?

    Also, does anyone know anything about Aaron Harang's agent and his reputation?

    Schoenweis is represented by him...a main reason why he isn't signed right now with the Reds.

    He was Lopez's agent, but I don't think any guys currently on the roster have him.

    I see Lohse as the only active Red. Apparently Boras was Jay Bruce's agent but isn't any longer.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Thanks for the responses. I had remembered Lopez but had forgotten about Schoeneweis.

    Sun-Woo Kim, an unsigned free agent, is also a Boras client.

    Harang's agents are Sam and Seth Levinson who own ACES Sports Management. They were listed as one of the up and coming power brokers in Baseball America's Top 25 Power Brokers back in March 2005. They were also the agents who helped Kevin Millar avoid going to Japan back in 2003.

    The blurb from Baseball America:
    New York-based agents have recruited an impressive clientele, including Scott Rolen and Javier Vazquez, and built a strong reputation with the players’ union.

    --Former Reds GM Wayne Krivsky, on why he didn't fly Josh Hamilton to Colorado for one game.

    "...its money well-spent. Don't screw around with your freedom."
    --Roy Tucker, on why you need to lawyer up when you find yourself swimming with sharks.

    Jay Bruce currently employs the Sosnick-Cobbe agency.
