Oh, um, hello. Come on in. It's Fernando Salas, right? Thanks for coming in... I guess.

Look, I'm going to level with you. I barely know who you are. Sure, I know your name, but aside from that, all I know is that our GM, Jerry, went out of his way to bring you on board. I have no idea why. I'm not trying to insult you, but he really went above and beyond to hire you. Heck, he actually let go of a kid we all thought had some potential just so he could get his hands on you.
Forgive me for being confrontational, but you seem to be the quintessential example of failing upward. Just look at your work record. Your first year you put up middling numbers. You issue too many free passes and roundtrips. Yet the very next year you end up getting promoted to closer. But then you lose that job part of the way through the year. The next year, you once again struggle with command and fall down the organizational depth chart. Then last year, the struggles continue to the point that you get demoted to the minors division.
And what's your reward for all of that? This organization headhunts you away to come over and work here, giving up legitimate assets despite you falling out of favor with your old employer. It just doesn't make any damned sense.no comments
