    Jack,
    My guess is that the popular modern metrics(such FIPS, UZR and WAR) often a prominent part of this site are largely unused by you and your department. Would I be right?

    I'd love it if you would elaborate a little on this. I presume you are not scouting things like arm angle and consistent release point and so forth. And all the players in this game are well known and have dossiers a mile long. What will you be looking for?

    This is really cool
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Anyone have any food recommendations? Also, include where it is located in the ballpark. I don't know my way around too well.

    And a warning to applicants, go look at all your social media postings about the Twins!!!
    ..... Twins Daily experiences massive archive deletions as potential applicants delete 95% of their posts.

    On an unrelated(?) note, negative Twins posts on Twins Daily decrease by 95%.

    Hmm.

    Hmmmm.
    I was about to say the same thing. I'm more of a back end systems guy, but you'd be a great fit... Wonder if the Twins could beat out your place.

    Is there a "die-hard" clause in the requirements I missed? "If you were actually alive the last time the Twins...."

    I'll bite.

    If you eat meat, you can't go wrong with Kramarczuk's. Sections 112, 117, and 312, Delta SKY 360° Legends Club.
    Oh, I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay,

    Weighing it is a pretty difficult thing to do. I would say it's impossible to do 50/50 because it's human nature to lean a little more one way or the other. I love scouting and I'm not able to get out as much as I would like. There is valuable info in scouting reports that you can use in the analytics process. There is just so much info available today with Pitch f/x, TrackMan, Statcast, advance scouting reports, etc. St. Louis does a good job of combining it. Oakland does a good job. The Yankees do a good job. The Spurs do a really good job combining the two types of data.

    I'm not familiar with Out of The Park baseball.

    Hey Jack,

    Any chance you could make a cameo appearance at the park August 23rd? Most of us mods are planning on being there... Ash will be there too, so you can pay him back for banning you.

    I think I may have seriously misunderestimated your skill set.
