    This is the second time I have seen this job posted.

    I have applied both times and have 7+ years of fantasy baseball experience.

    Haven't received any sort of reply.

    Surely this job would be remote, right? They wouldn't expect you to be in their NY office would they?

    Clearly there are no answers for this opening. I was extremely interested when I first saw it and now I am just wondering if the post was just to get a feel for potential interest.
