    Hey David, how does one become qualified to write for Fangraphs, and, having done so, how does one apply for a position? Thanks!

    I did not know you could make rubies from computer science, confusing as to why this is on a sports website and not a geological one.

    That screw up by you aside, on to my formal application:

    Name: Daniel — if you want a man of my caliber find out the rest yourself, I only accept being hired from people who come a begging.

    Mission Statement / The Meat and The Potatoes, Alongside One Another: I have a lot of experience with C+s, just ask my high school teachers. Is C++, like, a B-? I think I notched one or two of those babies.

    Look forward to working with you, in any case :) (and no, that smiley is NOT a suggestion NOR an indentation of extracurricular acts, don’t make me sue you on Day 1, it would be a shame).

    Thanks for the job, PS I’m gunning for your position already

    Why don’t any of these jobs ever have skillset requirements not involving computer programming? I make a heck of a cup of coffee and can really make you laugh around the water cooler. I’m like the Nick Swisher of office work.
