LAS VEGAS - Orioles ace Jeremy Guthrie has switched agents, leaving Scott Boras, who had represented the pitcher, 29, since he broke into professional baseball, and hiring Casey Close and Brodie Van Wagenen. Close and Van Wagenen represent the New York Yankees' Derek Jeter, the Philadelphia Phillies' Ryan Howard and the Washington Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman, among others. "There was no dramatic incident that caused me to look for new representation," Guthrie said. "I think Scott has done a phenomenal job, but moving forward, I felt that Casey and Brodie are a better fit for me and my career."

Getting there Bora Bora is part of the Leeward Island cluster within the Society Islands of French Polynesia. It's renowned as one of the most beautiful islands, with scenic vistas and a lagoon often described as an artist's palette of green and blue hues. Of course, beauty comes at a price. Bora Bora is about 13 hours from Baltimore by plane and can take up to 18 hours of travel time, including layovers. Travelers fly to Los Angeles and transfer to a flight into Papeete,Tahiti, where they switch for a 50-minute flight to Bora Bora.

NEW YORK -- A baseball logjam of sorts was broken this week when the Kansas City Royals signed their first choice in last month's amateur free-agent draft.You may have noticed that there has been little news about the signing of No. 1 picks lately. You may also have detected the subtle influence of Scott Boras, who gains a great deal of notoriety this time every year.Boras is the California-based lawyer who handled Ben McDonald's negotiations two years ago and has a history of clients who don't sign until college classes are about to resume.

Baltimore Ravens strong safety James Ihedigbo harbors no fears, especially when it comes to going face to face with his opponents. Ihedigbo's teammates get a kick out of his focus and intensity. Ihedigbo was so deeply immersed "in the zone" after forcing a near-interception (it was later called back) against the Miami Dolphins, he completely missed coach John Harbaugh's congratulatory chest bump - cameras caught him trotting past his leaping coach. But Ihedigbo clearly likes to celebrate.

It could happen this year. Given what's looming this offseason - and especially in 2008 - this is the time for the Orioles to make the unimaginable occur. Tomorrow, they should take a Scott Boras client with the fifth pick in the amateur draft, and then watch pigs fly around Camden Yards. It has been one of those unspoken truisms around here. The Orioles - like some other teams - do their best to avoid Boras, baseball's most formidable agent, even though the scars from the contentious Ben McDonald negotiations in 1989 have faded.

Super agent Scott Boras greatly enhanced his reputation as the most feared, reviled and respected player representative in baseball with the monstrous contract he negotiated for all-everything shortstop Alex Rodriguez, but he still faces his greatest challenge of this off-season. The true measure of his negotiating skills may be in persuading a large-market team to commit big money to tarnished superstar Juan Gonzalez. Gonzalez was expected to be one of the big prizes of this year's free-agent market after he turned down a $143 million contract offer from the Detroit Tigers last spring.

DALLAS - In the long unwinding of Scott Boras' life, from California farm boy to perhaps the most successful player agent in sports history, one constant has been his deep yearning to play an important role in professional baseball, the world that obsessed him as a young man and later eluded him as a player. Though he never made it to the big leagues swinging a bat, Boras sits astride the sport today like a giant, one of the most feared men in the business. Beginning in 1984, when he won a startling $7.5 million, five-year contract for a former minor-league teammate, Bill Caudill, Boras has again and again shown a talent for pushing the price of elite players to unprecedented heights.

Charles Johnson has been in a similar place before. But right now, with the Orioles' front office receiving more calls than the Home Shopping Network, he has no idea where he's going. With the breaking point rapidly approaching for the Orioles to decide whether they are contenders, beyond repair or somewhere in between, no pending free agent finds himself at the vortex of more professional and personality issues than the team's unassuming, rifle-armed catcher. My first thought is I'd like to be back here I next year," Johnson said.

All I want for Christmas is for Scott Boras to represent me the next time I'm looking for a job. Baseball's uber-agent has done it again, securing a six-year, $52 million contract for Japanese pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka even though the 26-year-old right-hander has never thrown a pitch in the American major leagues and will cost the Boston Red Sox a total of more than $103 million if you include the posting fee they now must pay to the Seibu Lions of...

If the Orioles have any concerns about the condition of Magglio Ordonez's left knee, the outfielder's agent wants to alleviate them. Agent Scott Boras said Ordonez is working out daily in Venezuela and Miami as part of his rehab from a second surgery two months ago to repair a torn meniscus. The Orioles appear to have serious interest in the free agent, and Boras is happy to flash the green light for future negotiations. "One thing Baltimore always has going for it is players have a favorable impression of it as a place to play and a great ballpark to play in," Boras said.

Agent Scott Boras , who represents several Orioles including Chris Davis , Matt Wieters , Wei-Yin Chen , Francisco Rodriguez and Zach Britton , was in Baltimore this week to meet with some of his clients. Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said he had some preliminary discussions with Boras, but would not go into specifics. “I talked to Scott when he was in town, obviously. … It was just an informal meeting,” Duquette said.

Agent Scott Boras, who represents Orioles first baseman Chris Davis and catcher Matt Wieters , was with some of his clients during Monday's media scrum and fielded questions. Asked whether he is having any dialogue with Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette about extending the contracts of Davis or Wieters - both free agents after the 2015 season - Boras said now is not the time. “Good teams are getting down to the wire here and they are playing,” Boras said.

Welcome to Week Two of "The Amazing Race," featuring the Secret Alliance Fight Club and also the Alliance of Quitters. The Race remains in Bora Bora this week, so let's get started because it's so pretty. We'll totally keep our end of the deal, probably Jessica and John, the dating couple, Team J&J for this leg, won two Express Passes last week. The top eight teams bunch up on the beach in the morning while waiting for water taxis, and Father/Son approach them about the second pass, which is theirs under the terms of the alliance.

So the Prince Fielder truck rolled along I-95 without ever stopping on the interstate. Well, that doesn't mean the Orioles can't get on the Scott Boras Free Agent Bandwagon before spring training starts. Right-hander Edwin Jackson, the pitcher with the highest upside remaining on the market, is still available. And so is DH/outfielder Johnny Damon, and some other Boras' clients. Jackson is the prize here. And the Orioles would love to have him. In fact, I've been told the club would consider a four-year deal for Jackson (something the Orioles and/or EVP Dan Duquette wouldn't usually do for free agent pitchers)

In an attempt to market his top free-agent client to major league baseball's biggest decision-makers, renowned player representative Scott Boras took slugging first baseman Prince Fielder on a brief tour this month to meet with several club owners. The duo did not meet with Orioles managing partner Peter Angelos. However, one industry source confirmed that Boras and Fielder were in the “Baltimore-Washington area,” meaning they likely spoke with representatives of the Lerner family, principal owners of the Washington Nationals.

What once appeared to be the Orioles' hard-line stance against negotiating a contract extension with catcher Charles Johnson apparently has softened. The club has contacted Johnson's agent, Scott Boras, about resuming negotiations for the first time since February, according to a club source. A pending free agent, Johnson is enjoying a career offensive season, having already set a career high with 20 home runs while batting .303 with 48 RBIs and a team- high .594 slugging percentage. Johnson's defensive excellence has also caused pending free-agent pitcher Mike Mussina to cite the catcher's return as a consideration in his negotiations as well.

SAN FRANCISCO -- While attending All-Star Game proceedings with several of his top clients yesterday, superagent Scott Boras said he hasn't had any discussions with Orioles owner Peter Angelos about Matt Wieters, the club's 2007 top draft pick. But negotiating with Angelos isn't a problem now and won't be in the future, according to Boras. "With Peter, whenever he has called me I've returned his calls and whenever I've called him he's returned mine," Boras said. "He's a hard-working guy. We're both Greek.

With news that the Texas Rangers won the posting rights to Japanese right-hander Yu Darvish, speculation has arisen that the Rangers may not be able to afford free-agent first baseman Prince Fielder. If that's true, then the market for the last remaining free agent stud has shrunk -- and perhaps cracked open for a fringe suitor such as the Orioles. And at least one national writer has speculated that the Orioles are still in on the Fielder sweepstakes. My take: Nope, not yet. Probably not ever.

The New York Yankees have no regrets about their December spending spree, a source said Wednesday, but their offseason pickups might be done, perhaps leaving no room for Andy Pettitte. The Yankees are comfortable with their outlay of $423.5 million for Mark Teixeira (Mount St. Joseph), CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett, the source said, for several reasons. They believe they got the best players on the market and ones that filled true needs. They had massive payroll coming off the books in the form of Jason Giambi, Bobby Abreu, former Oriole Mike Mussina, Pettitte and Carl Pavano, and even after the three big additions, their 2009 payroll should be slightly below that of 2008.
