The Royals recently posted one of these. I'm proficient in one of their required programming languages: MATLAB. Of course there were 7 or 8 that were required.

I have five stats courses, but I"m so damn rusty. I wonder if Bob's Keeper still lurks on here. He would be perfect for that job. Couldn't think of a better guy to translate complicated concepts.

SPSS, SAS, and STATA are basic programs that run statistics.

I've never used MATLAB, but I got it to work on our lab image that we push out. Does that count?

Pretty soon we'll have the best prospects, the best front office, the best field. That's every important facet of the organization, right?

Bradley Woodrum(fangraphs) and Colin Wyers(bp) are both Cub fans. Wouldn't shock me if one of them takes this position.

God, I hope the Cubs wouldn't consider Woodrum, he's an idiot.

This is Tom Tango, right? Excellent. He is the guy i was most hoping they would target, assuming they would also target someone to fill the consultant role filled for the Red Sox by Bill James. Good luck to everyone applying for the job opening!

Yes, it is Tom Tango. He did a bit of a Q&A with ESPN Chicago here.
