Lucky sports fans recognize the feeling: that surge of hope when your team acquires a superstar in a blockbuster trade, or you land the number one draft pick and it’s a generational talent who has broken college or junior-league records.  It’s like the feeling business leaders get when, after a long, arduous—and expensive—recruiting process, a preferred candidate accepts the job offer.  You know, that candidate with an ideal resume, a great track record, and the personality profile we hope will turn around an underperforming team.
