  1. Mr. Cistulli,

    Thank you very much for your impressive application and cover letter. As you well know, my staff and I are very big fans of what you do at Fangraphs, and we like to believe that we are imbued in the, shall we say, Fangraphical philosophy of baseball team construction. To that end there are a few questions I wish to put to you before we arrange a formal interview; to begin: how frequently do you blink?

    Best regards,

  2. Mr. Cistulli,

    Do you have any former Philadelphia Phillies prospects in your possession? If so, I am willing to trade my wife and children for them.

  3. The good news is, you’re fired.

  4. Mr. Best Face,

    We’ve been looking for someone with a Scottish accent to take over pitching development for our franchise. Meet me at Chris Tillman’s house in 15 minutes. Bring a voodoo doll and a fistful of dirt. Wear a red carnation.

    Mr. Big Bird

  5. Put. That coffee. Down. Coffee’s for closers, or at least Mike Adams level set up men.

  6. Based on what went down yesterday, I encourage you to direct a similar letter to the General Manager of the Detroit Tigers, Mike Ilitch.

  7. I recall writing the first two comments, but not this one. Too many damned pints.

  8. Speaking of pints and Englishman, today’s guest on the podcast is Craig Robinson of Flip Flop Fly Ball.

    He cursed during the middle of taping bc Man City scored on L’pool.

  9. Did you remind him of that time Team USA scored on G’Britain in 1776?

  12. “What is qualified? What have I been qualified for in my life? I haven’t been qualified to be a mayor. I’m not qualified to be a songwriter. I’m not qualified to be a TV producer. I’m not qualified to be a successful businessman. And so, I don’t know what qualified means.”

  13. You have $0.79? You’re hired if you give it to me.

  14. Oh wait, we’re trading you to the Red Sox for a PTBNL and cash considerations.

  15. Carson, you forgot to use the word “leverage”. For example, I leveraged the 79 cents in my pocket to buy a cup of coffee.

  16. In a more perfect world, your tombstone would read:

  17. This is absolutely Wodehousian.

  18. If the Astros hire you, I’ll buy season tickets. And I live in Chicago.
