Dear Sir,
Karl Drews has nothing more to prove at AA Elkhart!
He has an ERA of 3.64 over there, so I think
a promotion wouldn't hurt.

He has an AVG of .241 over there, that might
be a sign that he has been promoted to soon. You

Subject: Status of Mickey Grasso
Dear Sir,
Mickey Grasso isn't hitting the ball at all at AA Elkhart!
He has an AVG of .248, so a demotion is
the right choice. He shouldn't be emberassed any more.

Chet Kehn seems overmatched at AA Elkhart!
