Interesting read. Props to you for the time and effort put into the interview and post.
Matt, stellar job! Triple crown for you. Your interviews with Bob and Jim were first rate and your questions excellent. Kudos to Bob and Jim for their candor, too.

Great job Matt.

MC: “Yup! I had Brent and I’ve had Aaron (Miller) in Colorado… and I think I’ve had maybe a couple more at some time or another”.
I loved this part...
JF: “I’ll admit, I’m not knowledgeable enough to tell you what’s down there. I don’t spend a lot of time analyzing what’s down in the minor leagues. I know from reading letsgokings.com a lot of people do. A lot of people do a lot of research.”
See, they DO read and get their info from us!
