It’s that time of year again. The turkeys are going on sale, the menorah candles are being opened, the non-flammable mock-pine reindeer sculptures are coming out of their boxes and the mall employees are drinking more alcohol than is healthy to help boost their coping mechanisms. The holiday season is here and the gift buying, giving and receiving are all flying faster than Prince Fielder running to the snack bar. We all have our ideas of what the Angels should be looking for as a team this offseason, but maybe we should take a look at what the players themselves are asking old St. Nick for this Christmas:
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’ve been getting better every year since I had, um, issues a few years ago. The thing is, my batting average has deteriorated almost as quickly as I’ve improved! You gotta help me Santa! Give me my badass slugging power back!
I'm not sure I should even ask this since it seems so petty, but it's something I really want and I hope you can help. This year, I won 6 more games than Jered, I threw more strikeouts, AND I earned more fantasy baseball points. It seems like the writing's on the wall, but for some reason no one's talking about it. So I ask you, Mr. Kringle, can I possibly be the "Ace" next season?
