The Nats sent out a letter to the fans today, post Acta firing. Here’s the letter in it’s entirety. I was going to addend it and fill it with snarky comments, but that’s probably unecessary. Basically they run through what went wrong, how they’re pissed too, but that there’s still hope for the future, so don’t worry. It’s an interesting, if not entirely necessary or possibly even useful, way to reach out to the fans. I just read it up and down a few times, and didn’t see any apology for the last 2 seasons. That’s probably the one thing that’s missing from here. Oh yeah, and a signature on the dotted line from Strasburg already.
To Fans of the Washington Nationals,
No one is more dissatisfied in the first half of the 2009 Washington Nationals season than we are. Like you, we had hoped that some of our younger players would have matured faster and that the addition of some of our new veterans would have significantly improved our record from a season ago. Our hope was that solid club leadership would emerge on and off the field and that some intangible combinations would begin to click resulting in many winning streaks.
