After hitting under .220 most of the season, you've managed to bring your average up to .229. Good job, but it's too little, too late. I still recognize that you have quite a bit of upside, but I just can't take the loud sucking sound your batting average is (was) making on my roster for this stretch drive. A couple of waiver wire pickups named Ty and Mike are filling in for you nicely, and I just can't spare your dead roster spot anymore.
Until next year, Rickie, where I'm sure for the 3rd year in a row, I'll draft you based on your potential instead of your past performance. Sigh.
One of your many hopeful owners,
