It's that time of year once again. Waking up and looking for gifts under the Christmas tree, wondering what Santa Claus brought us this year, hoping that he got our letter with our wish list.
It's not just kids that write letters to Santa Claus, adults do too, including Brewers GM Matt Arnold!
We at Reviewing the Brew have obtained an exclusive copy of Brewers GM Matt Arnold's letter to Santa Claus this Christmas.
Dear Santa Claus,
Hey Santa, I hope you're doing well and staying warm up there at the North Pole. It's gotten really cold down here in Milwaukee so right now we know how you feel up there all the time.
Frankly, Santa, things have been pretty cold around here since August because of what happened at the Trade Deadline. My good buddy David and I traded Josh Hader for four players and things did not go very well afterwards. I know that move may have put us on the naughty list but we recognize we made a mistake and hopefully that can put us back on the nice list.
If you do have me on the nice list Santa, there are a couple of things I have on my list. First of all, I am hoping that you might be able to fix my Christian Yelich action figure. He's been stuck in "average" mode and I can't get the switch to flip back into "MVP" mode. He's a lot more fun when he's in MVP mode.
Secondly, I would love some more help for my offense. Right field and third base and two spots where I really could use an upgrade. Yandy Diaz is really good and if you could pick him up while you're in Tampa Bay and drop him off under my Christmas tree, that would be awesome!
Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, I don't know what your budget is Santa, but if you could gift me a contract extension with one of my star players Willy Adames, Corbin Burnes, or Brandon Woodruff under the three this year, it would be the best Christmas ever!
Oh, and one last thing, please give extra treats to Rudolph before your trip. You're going to need his nose flying through the storm that's across the Midwest this Christmas.
It looks like Matt Arnold has some big things on his wish list this Christmas. Hopefully Santa Clause has him on the nice list this year. We'll find out soon enough. Merry Christmas.
Note: In case it wasn't obvious, this isn't meant to be taken literally. Matt Arnold did not actually write this letter.
