Dear Terry, Omar, and Brian:

Sammy hit the ball real hard tonight. He’s 11 for his last 30 against lefthanders (.367/.441/.667) with 10 RBI. If you think that’s fluky, he’s hitting .338/.438/.622 in 74 at-bats against southpaws for the year, with 20 runs slammed in.

He’s not a great hitter anymore, but he’ll get a handful of big hits for you over the next two months. Maybe three months.

We want to do right by Sammy and right by you, and we want to do what’s right for us. We don’t need a ton in return. It can be a pretty easy negotiation.

This unlikely chapter can end well. First come, first served.

Call us.

The Texas Rangers

P.S. Turn on SportsCenter tonight and watch what Marlon Byrd – and Mark Teixeira – did to end tonight’s game. Loves me some great defense.
