Diagnosis: Cold.
He is day-to-day, but full recovery will take 2 days.

Subject: Status of Boots Poffenberger
Dear Sir,
Boots Poffenberger seems overmatched at AA Hagerstown Hilltoppers!
He has an ERA of 5.53 over there, so I think
you should demote him.

Regards,
Scouting Director



Date: Monday, 5/1/1944
Subject: Status of Doyt Morris
Dear Sir,
Doyt Morris isn't hitting the ball at all at AA Hagerstown Hilltoppers!
He has an AVG of .116, so a demotion is
the right choice. He shouldn't be emberassed any more.

Regards,
Scouting Director



Date: Monday, 5/1/1944
Subject: Status of Fred Chapman
Dear Sir,
Fred Chapman has an AVG of .170 at AA Hagerstown Hilltoppers!
That's definitely no good sign. I suggest demoting him soon.

Regards,
Scouting Director



Date: Saturday, 5/6/1944
Subject: Status of Al Flair
Dear Sir,
Al Flair shouldn't play at AA Hagerstown Hilltoppers!
He has an AVG of .245 over there, that might
be a sign that he has been promoted to soon. You
should demote him before he gets burned.

Regards,
Scouting Director

Manager,
Believe it or not, but I am a starting pitcher!
Would you please treat me as one and put

Dear Sir,

the right choice. He shouldn't be emberassed any more.

Subject: My role in this team
Sir,
I believe that I am deserving more than being a reliver.
I want a spot in the rotation, I think
I would do an adequate job. Otherwise, I'd like to play
elsewhere!

Dear Sir,
Charlie Ripple has nothing more to prove at A Reading Railmen!

Jug Thesenga is not recovering as fast as I have
