    Likey.

    So Jack, can you divulge what indicators led you believe Mike Pelfrey is worth bringing back? Obviously he began the season coming off TJ surgery so some struggling was to be expected. As the season wore on he became pretty good and his peripherals showed he was better than his ERA suggested. Can we get a nugget about him from you?
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Our Assistant GM, Rob Antony, does a tremendous job in negotiating contracts. He has a great feel for when to give and take. Really fun to listen to him negotiate.

    I have no doubt this phase of the effort requires all the finesse in the world. But picking *which* pitchers to negotiate most seriously with is no small thing either.

    What could you possibly have going on at work right now!? Come on man, this forum stuff is waaaaaaay more important. All jokes aside, kudos on your signings of two pitchers who could be rock solid for the organization.

    Really stellar work this offseason, Jack. It's not hard to see the statistical analysis fingerprints all over the Nolasco and Hughes signings.

    Hey Jack,

    Were we ever really close on AJ?

    Jack,

    We all know there is a substantial corellation between wins and attendance. Can you give us an indication of how closely attendance can be predicted based on win record.

    Please note: I am not asking if the team uses this calculation. My question is how closely could you predict attendance based on win record if you were so inclined.
