Article: Q&A with Jake Mauer (Part I)

Really interesting to read about the other JM's thought processes. (Or is that the 3rd JM's thought processes?)
P.S. If you take another trip to CR later in the season, see if you can get another shot of the bulletin board or maybe Jim Crikket can do so. I'm betting a lot of those extra push pins are in use by then).

One of the better Q&A's I've read. Well done. Can't wait to see rest of interview. Did you interview Tommy and Lucas as well? or is that another time?
Not in this format. I had a lunch with Tommy again, and we talked before and after each game. I had never met Lucas before, but he's another great guy and very knowledgeable. I interviewed him after the first game, but then just chatted more with him the other days.

Awesome stuff, and appreciated that he took the time to do this.
Jake is just a terrific person, very personable, genuine, and I think he's got the appropriate mentality to be a great manager at this level (and frankly, any level). I didn't ask all the normal questions, and he didn't shy away from any of them. It was casual and I thought he did a great job. There are more interesting thoughts in part 2 that I think people will enjoy.
