The best way to develop players is a talent pipeline that comes courtesy of the MLB draft. This is where the new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) could work against a core philosophy the Rays used to compete compensatory picks. The CBA is removing first-round compensation picks for premium free agent defections and historically that is where the Rays may feel they have had an advantage. It is arguable that they do, as the only contributing major leaguer they have picked in the last five years from their dozens of compensation picks was the 2011 Blake Snell selection for losing Brad Hawpe . The fact is, it is a competitive balance mechanism that will be reduced for 2017 under the new CBA and it should make the players happy, particularly free agents, who now can sign contracts without the negative association of their new teams losing a valuable first-round pick. While this change in the CBA helps the players, it does not help the Rays. Tampa Bay wants to use the draft to keep up with teams that can afford to sign elite free agents as contract values continue to climb. Witness within their own division where one team just signed a $17.2 million dollar sites closer for the next five years and another has a $95 million dollar Kung-Fu Panda that it can so far chalk up to an expensive mistake.

Republican Representative Tom Price , Trump’s choice to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, is “decisive by nature,” said fellow Republican lawmaker Tom Cole. He credited Price’s career as a surgeon, which is also the former profession of Ben Carson , Trump’s choice for secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Carson, said Henry Brem, a neurosurgeon who worked with Carson at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, has a “cool head” and is unafraid to give strong opinions. “He’s a gentleman, he speaks his mind, he has great ideas and nobody in the world intimidates him,” he said. Rick Perry , Trump’s choice for Energy secretary, served three terms as governor of Texas and had to “balance a very conservative and increasingly ideological grassroots (support base) with a very influential business community,” said James Henson, director of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin. Whether he can do that do that in a bureaucratic setting, in an environment as competitive as a cabinet with a lot of obviously large egos, I think is interview skills nursing another question,” Henson said. Several of Trump’s picks have never held any sort of government post and have little, if any, background in policy-making, including Tillerson, Treasury nominee Steven Mnuchin , a Goldman Sachs alumnus, Commerce pick Wilbur Ross , a billionaire investor, and Gary Cohn, the Goldman Sachs executive who would chair Trump’s economic council. In 2008, Mnuchin purchased IndyMac, a lender that failed during the financial crisis and helped transform it into OneWest, now a thriving retail bank in southern California. Kevin Kelly, a managing partner at Recon Capital Partners, an investment firm in Stamford, Connecticut, said that kind of real-world savvy could make government more effective. Those with high-level corporate experience are used to having to please shareholders, board members, employees, and the community, Kelly said.
