    And, it’s not in the bullpen. From the Official Site – with a hat tip to Tom Tango:

    New York Yankees Job Opportunities

    Computer Programmer
    The New York Yankees organization is accepting applications for a full-time computer programmer in their Baseball Operations department.

    Computer Programming/Statistical Analysis Intern
    The New York Yankees organization is accepting applications for a computer programming intern in their Baseball Operations department.

    I liked this “must answer” question from the job descriptions:

    Have you ever written code to interact with the the RETROSHEET and LAHMAN databases?

    Well, now we know where the Yankees get their data. Someone should just buy Cashman a copy of the Complete Baseball Encyclopedia and a subscription to Baseball-Reference.com’s Play Index for Christmas or his birthday, whichever comes first. Then he wouldn’t have to make these hires and Big Stein would have two less mouths to carry on the company’s dental insurance plan.

      Or they could hire Lee, and be done with it :)

      The computer programmer job opportunity has been listed for a quite a while, actually. Months. Interesting that they use the Lahman database.
