Boras: Jay-Who?

MINNEAPOLIS -- It may not be "Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you," but uber-agent Scott Boras gets his own shoutout in a new Jay-Z song, "Crown," off his upcoming album "Magna Carta Holy Grail."

The line goes like this: "Scott Boras, you over baby/Robinson Cano, you coming with me."

Cano, of course, recently left Boras to sign with Jay-Z's Roc Nation to negotiate his upcoming free-agent deal. So naturally, I called Boras to find out if he was flattered by the name-check.

"I'm a fan of jazz," he said, "And my favorite musician is Bernie Williams. What other musician could play center field for the Yankees and win four world championships?"

Presumably, not Jay-Z.
