How did Erik Neander end up running the Rays? Well, it’s interesting …

“I describe Erik’s approach to baseball as obsessively curious, and he’s helped many of us look at the game through a more complete lens. His passion and creativity touch every branch of the department, and he possesses a constant need to seek new and more information.  He’s essentially self-taught, and has a detailed understanding of every role, from scout to analyst.’‘

He was the only one to apply for the job? He had his own car? He brought homemade muffins to the interview?

He worked his way up the organization? Wow, that's really rare these days.

The one weird thing I heard about him is that he makes anybody he is thinking of signing stand next to him beforehand. You see, he'll only sign players who are at least Neandertal.

That might be the single dumbest thing I have ever laughed at. Thank you, sir.
