    Fangraphs posted the job description for the Royal’s “Senior Analyst” position. I assume this is the job that Mike Groopman had before he left the org this year.

    Does anyone know anything much about how much influence the analytics people have?
    I noticed that Josh Duggan over at Royals Review had noted the job ad with the comment “apply if you want your work to be ignored.”

    My hunch is that there is a lot of truth to Josh’s snark. Maybe things are changing now given the absolute mess the organization is in talent wise.

    Anybody have any ideas on this? Heard anything?
