Crede also said that, unlike A-Rod -- who is in town with the New York Yankees starting today -- he has no plans to stray from Boras' advice and try to negotiate a deal himself to stay with the team he claims his heart is with. ... Crede, who is on a one-year contract, said Sunday he has had no second thoughts about Boras representing him or the path that his advice might take him during the 2008 season. ''That was their own personal business, their decision,'' Crede said of Rodriguez and Rogers. ''That had nothing to do with my business and my relationship with [Boras]. That's not something I even looked into. Just because they chose to jump off a cliff doesn't mean I'm jumping off that cliff.'' ... ''[Rodriguez's] situation was totally different. He's one of the greatest players ever to play the game. His situation is night-and-day to mine. It would be hard to relate to someone like that with my situation, even though we have the same representation.''
