Only a few players in Major League Baseball negotiate on their own behalf, including Gary Sheffield of the Detroit Tigers and the Phillies' Jamie Moyer. "The idea agents like to promote is the athlete as an idiot who goes in and is taken advantage of by the club," says Schilling's lawyer, Ed Hayes. A lawyer or adviser can get paid by the hour rather than rake the 5% cut off the top that agents take, he says, but a player "has to be relatively confident in his ability to negotiate, and not every player is."
