Dear Sir,
It's been a hard decision, but I think I will retire
after this season. It's time to let the youngsters
take my job.

Subject: Lazaro Salazar healing process
Lazaro Salazar is not recovering as fast as I have
hoped! So expect his injury to last about 14 more days.

Subject: Status of Ed Albosta
Dear Sir,
Ed Albosta has problems at AA New Orleans Pelicans!
He has an ERA of 5.60, so you might
want to demote him soon, before his attitude suffers!

Scouting Director

Subject: Progress of Steve Souchock
Dear Sir,
Steve Souchock has nothing more to prove at AA New Orleans Pelicans!
He has an AVG of .278 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!

Subject: Tony Ordenana learns new position
Tony Ordenana has made noteable progress
learning his new position, Third Base.
I would rate his skills as "9" right now.
