Ok, thanks. Yeah that's definitely a good pairing because Comp Sci can be useful for data analysis. Well very useful because data manipulation is really the biggest obstacle. I always find the analysis to be the easiest part. But it's about organizing your data so that you can draw useful conclusions. I've been working with a massive NBA dataset so I've had to kind of learn some skills on how to sort/filter the data (mainly been using pivot tables in excel, though I still prolly need to learn some programming to make some specific ideas I have easier to execute). But I've definitely gained that experience with big datasets that a lot of these NBA jobs require. Also, it's a good idea to add in visuals.
Tbh, I'm not really that interested in writing or journalism, but I like doing the research and the only way to really convey it is if you write. And honestly, it doesn't take too much time if you know what you want to say.
Please post trades in the proper format (specifically, when posting minor leagues, please specify which team they are from, not just "A" as there are multiple "A" teams in each organization).
Also, the marlins are in Miami now, not Florida. lol
Yeah that's definitely a good idea. It should help you get "noticed" if you have enough readers. There's some key stats guys that work with teams who've gone that route. I've actually been doing that myself. Well I don't have my own site but I'm writing for a site, which has some NBA contacts as well as media contacts.
Yah. I'll find you.
I'm not actively looking to trade him. But I'd be open to it if I could maybe package him in a deal for Kershaw or Greinke.
I doubt you really need string pulling. I certainly didn't know anyone high up at Disney when I applied. Although ESPN did come to my college campus and I met a recruiter there. They also told us how to tailor our resume towards getting noticed. After that, it was just answering their different interviews. You do need to know all sports though. But it wasn't that hard. I didn't even have a face to face interview, it was all over the phone.
Uh, I forgot the exact title but yeah I was in the Stats department. It was all one department so while I didn't write any articles, I did basically see everything. That also included meeting their analytics guys, who I still occasionally email about random stuff/ideas/etc.
Nope, but honestly not surprised since I haven't done enough networking or my own original analysis published on a site (which I'm working on). Also going to the SSAC so that should help. I did see those internships you had mentioned, I applied but didn't get a response. Well the Rockets one I applied to like a year ago and it's still open. Suppose I could re-apply. But yeah, hopefully by the SSAC (which is great for networking) I might be able to find something.
No thanks. I don't want any part of Either's contract and I already have Dunn and Konerko producing at a very high level at 1B/DH so I don't really need gonzalez.
I'm actually comfortable with Pierre back there at this point, so thanks anyways, but I don't want Either.
