Another Quick Application Update

I want to thank everyone who applied for the positions with FanGraphs for your patience. I was expecting to have more time to contact people while in the hospital last week, but the second round of chemotherapy was a little rougher on my energy level than I had hoped. I’m back home now, though, and will be contacting applicants to setup interviews this week.

Don’t lose heart if you applied and haven’t heard anything back yet. We’re really excited about the pool of people who are interested in contributing, and just want to make sure we get the right folks on board. Your patience has been greatly appreciated, and your support during this time has been overwhelming as well. This is truly one of the best communities of people to be found on the internet.

    Please get better. There has been a noticeable uptick in the quality (IE none) of contract analysis involving player utility decisions much to my disappointment.

    I think I speak for everyone (which I rarely do) in saying that the idea that you’d apologize for not getting back to someone because you were having trouble with chemo just reinforces what a mensch you are. Feel better, Dave.
