Since Christmas Day is about over, I thought I might give out some wishes I have for the upcoming year.
For Jason Varitek: A healthy and productive year as Red Sox Captain.
For Curt Schilling: One last great year, with you going out in a blaze of glory with another WS ring.
For David Ortiz: The A.L. MVP Award: You shoulda won it last year.
For Jon Lester: Health. Anything else is gravy.
For Manny: 40 HR, 135 RBI, a plus .300 avg, and happiness in Boston.
For Trot Nixon: A place to play everyday, a healthy year, and a return to the Sox one day in the not too distant future.
For Daisuke Matsuzaka: 15-20 wins and a thick skin. I'm afraid you're gonna need it.
And finally, for the New York Yankees and their fans: 3rd place in the A.L. East. Because I would only wish that on my worst enemy.
A New Thing for a New Year
