    It’s also possible for the effects of such letters to creep into someone’s play…

    When you talk about “legitimate” reasons to “hate” any of these people, are you talking pre-letters…or post-letters?

    When Henry Aaron hit his 715th home run, his mother met him at home plate, and grabbed him in a hug. She was hoping that anyone who might shoot him…wouldn’t do it if his mother were clinging to him.

    Do we know these letters came from Cubs fans? Any douchebag with a piece of paper and a stamp can send an ignorant letter to a baseball player.

    If this kind of thing can affect performance, perhaps we should start a similar letter writing campaign to Albert Pujols…

    …I kid. Maybe…
