Hello Boss,
Our fans aren't really happy about the loss of Joe Vosmik.
The overall fan interest decreases slightly.

Sincerly,

Dear Sir,
Marv Rickert has nothing more to prove at AA !
He has an AVG of .367 over there, so I think

He has an ERA of 3.69 over there, so I think

Ace Williams is not recovering as fast as I have
