By all accounts, the pitching-challenged Tampa Bay Devil Rays helped themselves in the recent Major League Baseball draft by choosing Vanderbilt pitcher David Price as the number one, overall pick. The Rays still are hoping to sign him soon. In fact, they already have a working relationship with his agent, Nashville-based Bo McKinnis.
Only problem is that relationship dates to McKinnis’ representation of number-one draft pick Dewon Brazelton in 2001. The same Brazelton who frustrated the Rays by holding out until late summer after bad-mouthing their multi-million-dollar offer as “chump change.”
Too bad that wasn’t the case. It’s all he was worth. He stunk.
