Blake Snell left the sixth inning of Game 6 of the World Series on Oct. 27 with a 1-0 lead against the eventual champion Los Angeles Dodgers, bringing the Tampa Bay Rays closer to a title than the young franchise had ever seen. Reasonable minds can differ as to whether the decision was premature, but with Snell dominating, it felt early at the time, and letting Snell walk to the dugout didn’t pay off.
Two months to the date, the Rays are finalizing a trade to send their prime-aged ace to the San Diego Padres for prospects, according to an ESPN report in what can only be understood as a clear cost-cutting measure for the notoriously thrifty team.
Snell is just 28, already has a Cy Young award on his resume, and is coming off a strong, albeit short season limited by both the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and MLB’s cost-cutting response, a league-ordered 60 game season. But, as one of the highest-paid players on the Rays — which is not to confuse his $10 million per year salary as an onerous bill relative to his on-field production — he was rumored as a trade candidate for a team looking to save money after facing the short-term pandemic related revenue hit every big league team is facing.

The Padres grabbed a frontline starter, one who has excelled in the big games the upstart team hopes to win. Snell should exceed what San Diego hoped Mike Clevinger would produce in 2021 before they learned he would miss the entire year due to Tommy John surgery, while providing additional veteran presence alongside Dinelson Lamet, who is also 28 and coming off a breakout year.
As a bonus, Snell is under contract for the next three years, which tracks well with their young core of star-level talents led by Fernando Tatis Jr., who at 21 years old, is already one of the best shortstops in the world at the plate and field.
In return, the Rays will receive the baseball equivalent of lottery tickets: Top pitching prospect Luis Patiño, catchers Francisco Mejia and Blake Hunt, and right-handed pitching prospect Cole Wilcox. The Athletic’s Dennis Lin was first to report on the prospect haul.
Probably good scratch-offs.
Young, unproven talent is still talent. But, make no mistake, their value comes primarily from being less noticeable on the bottom line. None of which should credibly be expected to help the team compete for the World Series in the here and now. But, between the Snell trade and allowing postseason hero Charlie Morton to walk to the Braves, where the Rays have dramatically chosen to leave the luster of their present day for the future, where the only certainty is the lower cost of their payroll.
With the Rays’ knack for scouting, they will likely be the kind of players that elicit praise about the franchise’s savviness when they come into their own three or four years from now, just in time to replace the good, still-young players on the team threatening to get paid something approaching their worth.
This is the circle of life in Tampa Bay, one where talent is found, but never kept, routinely slipping away right when a title appears to be in grasp. Game 6 of the World Series was two months ago, but after trading Snell, it feels like the bottom of the sixth inning all over again.

Maximising opportunities in Lagos real estate market | The Guardian Nigeria News
Towards safeguarding the interests of real estate stakeholders and conforming with international best practices, stakeholders have agreed on the need to harmonise and sanitise the sector.
The stakeholders met at a two-day Lagos Real Estate Market Place Conference and Exhibitions, the first of its kind organised by the state’s Real Estate Regulatory Authority (LASRERA).
Key speakers at the panel sessions included Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chapel Hill Denham, Bolaji Balogun; Assistant Vice President Retail Mortgage Underwriting, Mr. Kunle Faleti; Femi Ademola of Cordros Capital; Babatunde Ajayi of United Capital Plc; Kayode Falasinu of AVA Capital; Sammy Chidoka of Kairos Capital; Tokubo Ajayi of United Capital Trustee; Mrs Funmi Ekundayo of STL Trustees; and Adekunle Awojobi of FBN Quest Trustees.
Others are expert from Morocco, Ms Tagma Mounla; CEO, Oct5 Limited, Jide Odusola; CEO Odo Ogun Castles Estate Limited, Buddy King; PWAN Group, Dr. Augustine Onwumere; CEOs of RTD Thompsons Limited, Otunba Tom Daramola; Gracia Group, Ms Lolade Abuta and Seagle Properties Limited, Yemi Lawal respectively.
The Special Adviser to the State Governor on Housing, Mrs. Toke Benson-Awoyinka, who set the tone for the discussion, said the idea was muted as an avenue to provide practitioners, stakeholders and consumers, a platform to unearth the various opportunities available in real estate.
“We realised that there are genuine real estate practitioners/ property developers as well as genuine home and property seekers who are very desirous of credibility in real estate transactions, hence our intervention as a state government is to provide this forum, which will help bridge the identified gap.
“As parts of our efforts towards transforming the industry, LASRERA has leveraged on technology to make it easy for anyone anywhere in the world to access the data of accredited real estate practitioners/ property developers and their products,” she said
According to her, this is one of the strategies being used by the government to curb proliferation of uncertified practitioners, quackery and unprofessionalism.
Benson-Awoyinka urged investors to create a home ownership model that would address the deficits observed in housing market in through the Private Public Partnership (PPP) initiative.
Benson-Awoyinka identified the real estate market as a sector that has a tremendous multiplier-effect on the broader economy through two channels: private investment and housing services.
Earlier, the State’s Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Mr. Olalere Odusote, expressed the desire of the government to have sustainable, reliable power and greener energy towards the realisation of its vision of a 21st Century economy.
While quoting the United Nations statistics, which revealed that real estate accounts for about 40per…
