Welcome back to Dead Letters, the feature in which we reprint our favorite fan mail from throughout the week. It's like Deleted Scenes, but without all the scuzz money. We should take this moment to remind you that all emails to Deadspin and its editors are on the record unless otherwise specified. Now for your letters.

We made our run. Baltimore was the Braves of last year. Tabata should not be on the roster. He hasn't hit the ball out of the infield in 2 months, makes terrible plays in left and rarely hustles. Yet they keep playing him. They will not sacrifice runnners over. Who cares if McCutchen is up. Odds are he is going to make an out. Nobody cuts down their swing or chokes up to direct the ball to the open areas. Especially with these shifts they run. A bunch of multi millionares who do what they want. I see 14 under .500 and 4th place unless they make some drastic changes like sending down Tabata, brining up Marte and Clement. Very unlikely to happen. Another disgraceful year is in progress and they are doing nothing to stop it.............I'm ready to read about a successful organization. The steelers. There is no "authority" on this team. Do this if you want to play! Just going about their separate little battles...............Uggghhh.........................Chris
