So the Astros hired this fella, Sig Mejdal, to be the club’s “Director of Decision Sciences.” I hear what you’re probably saying to yourself. “Isn’t that a made-up title?” In a way, yes it is. That may or may not have you asking, “So what other titles were considered?”
Well you’re in luck. I’ve procured a copy of the different titles the Astros were prepared to hand out had this not worked out. Take a gander.
Director of…..Sciences? Yes, just plain Sciences.
Director of Lawn and Blog Management
Director of Follicular Development and Cultivation
Director of Pizza Parties
Director of Prayer and Missions.
Director of Video
Director of Just Because
Director of Ejection, Dejection, Rejection, and Country Music Selection
Director of Michael Young Department
Director of Social Media
Director of Transportation
Director of Exercise Sciences
With all these names in mind, and the whispers that Shep Trumbo and Gil Thorpe were in the mix to be added to the PR department, it’s not hard to see that there was some pretty stiff competition. Props to you, Mr. Mejdal.
