If the Yankees listened exclusively to the opinions of fans, it probably wouldn't be good. But hey, sometimes we fans have strong opinions. Most of them aren't listened to and that's fine. But what if you could get a memo on the desk of someone at the Yankees? What would you say? I decided to ask the PSA staff just that.
Q: Today is National Memo Day. If you could send a memo to any Yankee player, manager, coach or front office person, what would you say?
Hey Tex. It's me, I'mGivingYouARaise. I appreciate your work this year. I'm happy you're healthy and that you're hitting dingers. Great work.
BUT HOW COULD YOU TAKE FOUL TERRITORY AWAY FROM US? HOW? YOU'RE A MONSTER!!!

Re: Lousy play, poor decisions, stinginess and sucking at baseball.
Thank you for your attention in this matter.
Dear Stephen Drew,
Did you see that new Twitter account tracking whether or not you've broken over to the good side of the Mendoza line? Funny, I know. Now go hit the ball more than 17% of the time.
Dear Stephen Drew,
I don't want to hate you, but you aren't leaving me a lot of choice. Can you, like, stop doing the things that you're doing and do more of the things that you aren't doing? Like hitting? That might be cool. Give it a try.
To Brian Cashman:
A reliable right-handed reliever not named Betances would be a welcome addition. No pressure.
Dear Brian Cashman,
Carlos Beltran. Why. WHy. WHY.
To: Stephen Drew
Look, I don't hate you as much as other Yankees' fans. I gave you a nickname. I appreciate that you're trying. But could you, like, play better? I know, I know.
Okay, if you're not gonna play better, at least do some weird stuff while playing. Like maybe play a game in a bear suit. That would be cool.
Those are our answers, and now we want to hear yours. What memos would you send to the Yankees?
