Kids say the darnedest things, someone once said. This is true. They also don't explain things all that well when they don't know exactly what it is they are trying to explain.
Such was the case when the York Daily Record/Sunday News had a video feature on the Arizona GM. His four children were asked to describe what their dad's job is.
As you can imagine, some of the answers were both cute and interesting. They really don't know exactly what he does. The oldest gave the most knowledgeable answers, but we learn many times because it is repeated, that the family appreciates his job with the Cards.
We know he is the day-to-day boss of the team. He oversees the roster, salaries, scouting and more.
But the most important is, according to one of the kids, he has a job so he can buy toys for the kids -- because that's why any dad has a job. It's all about the kids' toys. Why else would anyone work?
Here is the video:
