Just a question, but does Brooks actually send these out personally? Or are there staff members that do this kind of work, kind of like the website.

Brooks sends out eveything personally. He's in charge of licking all of the envelopes and placing the stamps on the brochures. During slow periods, he helps Roger Bossard mow the outfield grass too.

Ok, I guarantee the mailers were printed weeks before Carlos was traded. Are we really that concerned about the marketing mailers? Wow, some people really DO complain about everything. I got one of these too and thought it had a lot of nice pictures of the team and am happy that the team is targeting season ticket sales to increase the fanbase so our team won't have to be so dependant on walk-up sales to fill the park.

Exactly. Brooks was going to get a couple of staff assistants to help, but someone told JR that Illinois just raised the minimum wage again.
