Subject: Status of Sibby Sisti
Dear Sir,
Sibby Sisti shouldn't play at AA Peoria Chiefs!
He has an AVG of .224 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

Subject: Progress of Charlie Sproull
Dear Sir,
Charlie Sproull is doing pretty good at A Madison Cubs!
He has an ERA of 1.89, so you might want
to promote him soon!

Regards,
Scouting Director

Subject: Status of Boyd Bartley
Dear Sir,
Boyd Bartley isn't hitting the ball at all at AA Peoria Chiefs!
He has an AVG of .181, so a demotion is
the right choice. He shouldn't be emberassed any more.

Scouting Director

My contract expires after this season.
I would like to resign, so please let's talk!

Dear Sir,
Earl Naylor has problems at AA Peoria Chiefs!

Charlie Sproull is not recovering as fast as I have

Subject: Progress of Adrian Zabala
Dear Sir,
Adrian Zabala has nothing more to prove at A Madison Cubs!
He has an ERA of 3.22 over there, so I think
