INDIAN WELLS (AP) – With baseball awash in record revenue as the signing season starts, Scott Boras compares the habits of teams to families sifting through supermarket shelves.

At the winter meetings in Dallas last year, the agent had this to say of the financially troubled Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets: “Normally, they’re in the steaks section, and I found them in the fruits-and-nuts category a lot.”

Since then, the Dodgers have been sold for $2 billion. The Mets owners have agreed to pay up to $162 million _ and likely much less _ in a deal with the trustee for Bernard Madoff’s fraud victims.
