NEW YORK (AP) Jay-Z is applying to become a baseball agent.

The Major League Baseball Players Association said Friday the rapper's application to be certified was received a day earlier.

Pretty sure Cano stays a Yankee, if nothing else.

I do think he has potential to be a real game changer though. It looks like the Boras model is losing ground, with more young players getting locked up prior to free agency. Who better to represent them than Jay-Z, an amazing promoter who might well maximize endorsements in a way that Boras can't. With as much money as he has behind him, I really do think that the sky's the limit.

I was flabbergasted to learn how little of a financial stake he had in the Nets.

I could actually buy him out.

The whole him being an owner thing was always a joke, but he brought in tons of people and hype.

I don't know a lot about the topic, but a lot of "names" actually have very little of their own money in businesses that bear their name.

There have been a lot of real estate ventures with Donald Trump's name attached where the use of his name is his only involvement in the project. The real investors actually "buy" his name for whatever cache it implies.

Clothes designers like Bill Blass and Ralph Lauren also sell their names to be placed on clothing they had no hand in designing.

The Jay-Z thing with the Nets was something that gave them an edge they needed after 30-plus years as one of the most non-descript franchises in sports. And it benefited him by making him seem like a guy who rose from the streets to become a mogul, which is the image he likes to project.
