Brewers Acquire K-Rod

Multiple tweets about the Brewers acquiring K-Rod for cash and two PTBNLs; I'll just use this Andy McCullough tweet as representative.

Matthew Pouliot at Hardball Talk notes that because Rodriguez has a $17.5M 2012 option that vests if he gets 55 games finished this year, it is likely he will be an eighth inning man for the Brewers.

This follows very quickly on the heels of K-Rod's hiring of $cott Bora$ as his agent. I've got to believe there's some connection.
I thought Boras was his agent when he signed with the Mets, but apparently that change was reported only two days ago. Fascinating. Clearly, the Mets are not in a position to be extorted by Boras, and have served notice that extensions and expensive free agents are luxuries they cannot now afford.
Also, it seems Mr. Rod was a possible trade target of the Yankees, but the Bronx team didn't think he would submit to working the 7th or 8th innings.
