I dont think he was saying "you might be picked for a big site", I think he was saying that it IS a big site:
"as you might have picked up, [IF YOU ACCEPT] you will be working with a big site.
In other words, even that was not being offered as consolation/compensation, but merely letting you know you would have even more work.
Also, does anyone feel uncomfortable working for someone whose chosen screenname is oxycontin? lol jk
