Agents Boras and Munsey in war of words over Braves prospect
by Bob Timmermann
The agent for Braves minor league catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Jim Munsey, has accused Scott Boras of "stalking" his client to induce him to change agents.
Jim Munsey, a Florida-based agent and lawyer who represents Braves star catching prospect Jarrod Saltalamacchia, said that representatives from Boras' agency continued to pursue Saltalamacchia even when the player repeatedly made it clear that he had no desire to switch agents.
Boras, in turn, charged Munsey with "misrepresenting the facts" and misinterpreting union rules about solicitation. He said his firm stayed in touch with Saltalamacchia only after the player willingly provided his cell phone number and initiated phone contact on several occasions to schedule meetings.
Note use of cut and paste to correctly spell Saltalamacchia this time.
