Letters to our Adopted Sons

The "Adopt a Giant" program got off to such a rousing start, what with all the jockeying for players, but has since become nothing more than a feature of many of our signatures. I recall the idea was to be the first line of defense for our adoptees, to take the heat for them and defend them or scold them or abuse them (in a funny way, of course). And while I should be relieved about this apparent fade, given that my boy Kevin has developed a habit of giving up vomit-inducing dingers late in games, it seems like a premise worth investing in still. Most of us probably can't recall who adopted whom, so maybe the razzing part just collapsed due to logistics, so...

I thought with the All-Star Break coming up, we could instead write letters to our sons, sort of a midseason progress report, in which we tell them what we appreciate about them, how they have gravely disappointed us, and what we expect in the second half of the season. Perhaps another letter would be appropriate for the end of the year as well (depending on how this proposal is received).

I'm still in the process of gathering my thoughts on my Correia, and will naturally post my letter upon completion, but in the meantime get yours up here. This team needs some tricky combination of tough love and encouragement. Nobody said being a parent was going to be easy.
