It's an idea. Plus, I want to write a letter and assume that Jerry Dipoto is sick of seeing my name in an envelope on his desk all in its lonesome. This one's about an issue that most of us feel deeply about. If you disagree, totally fine--you don't have to go in on it. But if you do agree, I highly encourage you to stand with me. We'll work out sordid details later. I'll handle postage and whatnot; right now, I just want to know who agrees with me on this issue, is willing to put their name on a letter regarding the issue, and see if a group effort might be strong enough to convince some higher-ups that more than one person is concerned about this organization.
Here's the issue. I, like many HH residents here, am frustrated with Mike Scioscia. It would not bring me pain to see him fired if the struggles of this team continue on. However, I am also not about to write a letter with only my name on it to express this viewpoint; the venting of a single fan is not about to have any impact, or even warrant a second look, at the issue of who manages this team. We're all WELL aware of that.
However, what if a substantially large group of fans consolidates their frustration(s) into one letter, and can agree on one solution to this problem? I'm talking potentially dozens of names signed at the bottom of this letter. We could all insert our own remarks into the letter. There is a diplomatic and resoundingly significant way to do this, and I feel that this is it.
If you agree with me, and feel that Mike Scioscia is not the right man to manage this team going forward if the team continues to skid, then I highly encourage you let me know. If your email is in your profile and you simply post saying you want your name on the letter, cool. If your email isn't in your profile, I'd ask that you place it in your comment--don't worry, I'm not about to spam you with forwards about government conspiracies, sick hospitalized children who need money, blah blah blah, etcetera. All I need is the email address so that I can email the basic formatting of the letter to all who are interested--that, and then we can put actual names into the letter (because let's face it, screen names will not get the point across).
Who replaces Scioscia? Again, we'll get that all figured out in our letter; one guy we can agree on. It looks a lot more sound and serious if we all can not only agree on letting Scioscia go, but also who replaces him--not for the interim, but for the long haul. Who attempts to succeed the legacy?
Hope to get a lot of names for this. If you're ready to be vocal and attempt to make this issue more serious, please leave a comment below stating such, and let's be a larger voice.
