Christmas is next week and Milwaukee Brewers General Manager David Stearns is on the nice list this season, so he is writing a letter to Santa Claus, telling him what he wants for Christmas. Reviewing the Brew has secured an exclusive copy of the letter Stearns wrote.
It’s your good friend David Stearns, and oh boy I have to say I am excited for this Christmas!
Last year you brought me some amazing gifts and I can’t say thank you enough!
I was patient and waited and you didn’t disappoint when you brought me Jhoulys Chacin, Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich! You were really nice to bring me Wade Miley too, that was a pleasant surprise!
Those gifts kept on giving throughout the whole year and brought us one game from our first World Series trip in 36 years!
So what I am asking for this year is the following:
Please give me a healthy Jimmy Nelson, he is a good pitcher and we would love to see him be a part of our starting rotation in 2019.
I would also like a long term contract for our franchise third baseman Travis Shaw. He has shown he is willing to do what it takes for the betterment of the team and he has also given us lots of run support over the last two years.
A season series victory over our “friends” down I-94 on the North side of Chicago. That will bring us joy all season and help our team towards our goal of a National League Pennant!
If it’s not too much to ask, I would also appreciate if you could bring me another MVP season for Christian Yelich, he was incredible last year!
Lastly and I know this is a large ask but I want to give back to our fans. So with all these amazing pieces you have given us can you please give us our first World Series and the first Milwaukee championship celebration in more than 40 years!
Thank you Santa,
If Santa comes through, 2019 should be a great year for the Milwaukee Brewers.
