It’s Christmas tomorrow, or so the calendar says. I could start listing all the things I want from Santa but I don’t want to be that needy child. All that gimme, gimme, gimme stuff is a turnoff. Besides, we all know I’m on the naughty list.

Daniel Murphy is still on our roster
Frank Francisco is not
Six more years (at least) to watch David Wright
The great Peter Wolf still tours, and
Mariano (the Looooong Goodbye) Rivera has ended his
Getting to watch Juan Lagares track a fly ball
A full year of Zack Wheeler
A great blogging partner
All our readers, of course, and
That’s all for now, as I can smell the ham, and it doesn’t stand a chance.
