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

Sincerly,
Your PR Director

Subject: Status of Al Campanis
Dear Sir,
Al Campanis isn't hitting the ball at all at AA Oakland Athletics!
He has an AVG of .211, so a demotion is
the right choice. He shouldn't be emberassed any more.

Regards,
Scouting Director

Subject: Status of Pete Elko
Dear Sir,
Pete Elko shouldn't play at AA Oakland Athletics!
He has an AVG of .226 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
