Dear. Mr. Angelos,
We need you to know something. We like our guys. We like them a lot. One in particular has had a fantastic couple of years in Baltimore. His name is Chris Davis.
He hits home runs, plays a great defense and hustles out each play. He plays the game the right way ─ the Oriole Way. He is also a father, follower of Christ and by all accounts a good guy. We think you should sign him. He has certainly earned it and the fans of your team want him to remain an Oriole. Mr. Angelos, while we know it is important to spend money wisely, and even conservatively at times, we hope you will consider increasing our payroll so we can keep Chris. It would mean a lot to all of us in Baltimore and to Oriole fans everywhere.
To show our support, we would like to contribute our own money to resign Chris. As we said, if he could remain an Oriole it would mean a great deal to this fan base. We pledge this campaign in spirit to Mr. Davis but in reality to LUNGevity and the Monica Barlow Tribute Fund. Undoubtedly money well spent, in Moncia’s honor and for one of our guys.
