You're smart as heck.

I know this, of course, because you're reading this right now. Purple Row, since its inception, has been known as a thinking-person's site; yes, you can come here for human interest stories and basic coverage of the Colorado Rockies and their affiliates, but you also know that this is the place to go for -- and to share -- in-depth sabermetric analysis and general outside-the-box thinking.

Believe it or not, the Rockies know that, too. That's why they reached out to us specifically to spread the word about a few job openings within their baseball research and development department. Here are some of the details:
