    Looks like Scott Boras and CAA Baseball did well.

  • Baseballnut12

    Nick Travieso has Gavin Kahn

    Looking over this list, very different groups did well. Icon Sports had 5 guys for a smaller group and it seems they’re kind of leading a new category of agency, the power boutique. Agencies that are not as big but still have good clients. Do you see this as a good model?
