Subject: Progress of Frank Papish
Dear Sir,
Frank Papish is doing pretty good at A !
He has an ERA of 0.34, so you might want
to promote him soon!

Regards,
Scouting Director

Subject: Progress of Marv Rickert
Dear Sir,
Marv Rickert has nothing more to prove at AA !
He has an AVG of .319 over there, so I think
a promotion wouldn't hurt him at all.

Regards,
Scouting Director

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!

Regards,
Jim Winford

Subject: I am a starter...
... so would you please put me in the rotation?
I want to go out there and start for my
team. Please come on, manager!

Rube Melton

Subject: Progress of Jimmy Grant
Dear Sir,
Jimmy Grant has nothing more to prove at A !
He has an AVG of .327 over there, so I think
a promotion wouldn't hurt him at all.

Regards,
Scouting Director

Subject: Extension?
Hello Sir,
Are you interested in negotiating a contract extension?
You know, I'm in my final year. I'd like to stay here!

Sincerely,
Joe Dobson
