Wow, I threw that out as a conspiracy theory when the ARod trade first came out. Originally, the trade was rumored to include Contreras, and I figured since Boras represented ARod, he might try to get the Yankees to bite on Maddux to replace Contreras in their lineup. It would be just like them though to sign Maddux when they didn't need a starting pitcher.
If they do sign Maddux, a lot of people who drafted Lieber or Contreras are going to be pissed.
It's time to roll the dice.
