Re: 4/40, and I ain’t referring to a track meet
I realize that your start has been slow, and that you might be feeling both the pressure of playing in the baseball-crazed city of Boston and also in a new league with a 4 year/40 million dollar contract, but don’t worry. I will not remind you again of the monstrous deal you signed, and what it was worth, (off the top of my head I think I remember it being around 40 million bucks or so for 4 years). I know it’s a long season, and there’s a lot more ball to be played, but I did want to tell you that we didn’t give you 4 years and 40 million smackeroos to hit .230 and make stellar plays but botch the easy ones. Take this email with a grain of salt, since what we really think of you is indicated by the 4 year 40 million contract that we gave you – we are sure you will earn every penny of those 40 million. Starting, say, now?!.
