Dear Sir,
The time has come. I'll leave the show after this year.
I guess I will have to make room for the young players.

Subject: Status of Wes Westrum
Dear Sir,
Wes Westrum isn't hitting the ball at all at AA !
He has an AVG of .247, so a demotion is
the right choice. He shouldn't be emberassed any more.

Dear Sir,
Paul Burris shouldn't play at AA !
He has an AVG of .237 over there, that might
be a sign that he has been promoted to soon. You
should demote him before he gets burned.
