Christmas is rounding the corner, approaching us way too fast. With this holiday season, Milwaukee Brewers GM David Stearns wrote a letter to the big man in red himself, telling him what he wants for Christmas. Luckily, Reviewing the Brew was able to snatch up an exclusive copy of the letter.
Hey bud, how’s it going? It’s me, David Stearns, your favorite baseball GM. I would like to say I’ve been very good this year. I’ve signed some good players that have definitely helped contribute to my team and they even made a back-to-back postseason appearance! How cool is that?
Last year, you gave me an amazing gift of Christian Yelich. He’s making his way to be the new face of the franchise and even won an MVP award wearing a Brewers uniform. Not only him, but giving me Mike Moustakas and Yasmani Grandal was also a huge addition to the team and Craig Counsell is also thankful for that (He wanted me to tell you that).
Since I’ve been very, very good this year with my Milwaukee Brewers, I have just a couple of big things that I think would make my Christmas super merry.
First, I would like a fantastic starting pitcher. My starting rotation is great, there’s no doubting that, but, I think an ace starting pitcher would be fantastic. That is a little on the expensive side, so if that’s gonna break the break, Santa, I also wouldn’t mind the Dallas Keuchel model or even bringing back Jhoulys Chacin. The Yankees took Gerrit Cole and I think they should be on the naughty list for spending crazy money. We get it, they have money, they don’t need to shove it in all of our faces. That was very rude of them.
Second, I would like a third baseman. One that can hit, and one that can play some amazing defense. My pet moose, Moustakas ran away and got caught by the Reds so there’s no chance of getting him back now. It broke my heart, I was pretty sad. Hope they treat my moose well. Overall, some good infielders would be nice. The little engine that could, Travis Shaw, just couldn’t anymore. He broke and is now on the island of misfit toys, such a shame.
Lastly, the biggest gift I want is a World Series appearance. A win would be nice too, but, I would like to get my Milwaukee Brewers there. They have come very close in the last two seasons, but I think it’s time that they bring the World Series win back to Milwaukee. Last time we went was in 1982, none of our men on the 40-man roster weren’t even born yet! It’s a big gift, but, it’s something I want the most. I am hoping you can use your Christmas magic and give me a miracle.
I hope that you see that I have been a good boy this year and I deserve that top spot on the nice list. If I get all those things on my list? December would be my favorite month and Christmas would be my favorite holiday. (Gonna have to pass up Craigtember and postseason, and that’s pretty hard to beat).
Thank you and Merry Christmas, Santa!
P.S. A throne for Bob Uecker would be nice as well. He is a king, might as well bring a crown too so we can appreciate him a little more for our 50th anniversary.
