Dead LettersWelcome to Dead Letters, the feature in which we reprint our favorite reader mail. We should take this moment to remind you that all emails to Deadspin and its editors and writers are on the record unless otherwise specified. Now for your letters.

Subject: Jordan Baker

From: Michael Gumbs
To: Jack Dickey

Jack Dickey,

Listen clearly-you’re a piece of shit and your story on the umpire Jordan Baker was trash. If I was your boss I’d fire your sorry ass. Jordan Baker will be in the big’s for years to come and you will probably not even be a writer in a few’ll be reduced to a shitty blog, sitting in your moms basement digging up trash. You dont even know anything about him yet you call him a wierdo and say that he cant make you watch baseball everyday? I know you dont you scumbag!

I wish you nothing but the very worst from here on out. You arent a journalist...youre just a fucking waste of life.

Subject: Editor

From: Colin Gilbert
To: Tommy Craggs

I’m curious if you are interested in a postion in janitorial services. Clearly, you are used to handling shit all day long. Editor. Ha. That is a hilarious title. I imagine its more like “Day Care Supervisor” for the knuckleheads around you who probably consider themsevles writers.

“Hey, Boss. I have a youbtube clip of some poor people fighting and a nine word write up. Can you edit this for me?”

Idiot Blogger - “Hey craggs, did you edit Drew’s new non-zombie book?”
Craggs - “No, I haven’t even read it.
Idiot Blogger - “Me neither.”

Get a life.

Subject: tip

From: Steve Sasssmith
To: The Staff

here’s a tip: stop asking people to do your work for you.

i suspect you’re splashing that everyday because the tips have begun to dry up. ya’ll are lazy as fuck at your easy ass job, and goodwill, my dear friends, surely has its limits


[Ed. note: We love reader mail. It powers features like this one! We post those blips with some regularity because the redesign makes it much harder for readers to find our email addresses or the tips line. Speaking of the redesign ...]

Subject: Your site stinks

From: Gabe Maciolek
To: The Staff, Gabe’s friends

I used to log onto your site a dozen times a day. Now with the new format, that was cut in half. Now that I discovered barstool, I log on maybe once a day. Way to go morons. Way to ruin a great thing. Discuss.

Seriously though, all these soccer updates??? The articles that you keep at the top of the page for days that nobody cares about??? Be honest, you know you’re getting more complaints now then ever, right? Your new format really sucks. And please, the simple picture with the discuss option, how many people actually discuss that? Or even click the topic???
