    I was a programmer 30 years ago, did a lot of software development, specializing in report writing. Think they could use someone with experience in BASIC and FORTRAN?

    Jim Hoey dislikes this comment, is not buying Dave a steak dinner, and is beginning to tear up a bit.

    So, like all at once, or 11 reps of 5 pounds? If it's all at once, might be time to see if that Snap Fitness door card leveling a kitchen table leg still works.

    Glad to see Jack in the house. Can we do a mid-season question and answer thread?

    Fitting in isn't an issue. Our team is locked in a secret part of Target Field and given food and water only at lunch. We are allowed out in the "yard" one hour per day and not allowed to speak with the other Baseball Ops staff members.

    Why does this have such an element of truth in it?

    In all seriousness, I don't know Brock so he may or may not "fit in". But I guarantee your perception of our Baseball Ops staff isn't quite what you believe it to be.
