all i want for christmas is for the red sox to suck

Dear Santa,

There is really only one thing I want for Christmas. It's not jewelry and it's not cash and it's not even video games. In fact, it's nothing that can be made by your hardworking little elves (Is that politically correct? Should I call them height challenged laborers?) at the North Pole.

Santa, I need to you to work some magic for me. I've really been a good girl this year. I didn't kill all those people I threatened to. I didn't run anyone over. I gave to charity and was nice to small woodland creatures and ate my vegetables. So I ask for just this one thing, this one gift that would lighten my days for years to come; especially the days from April through October.

The present I want is simple: Please fix it somehow so that A-Rod does not play for the Red Sox. I will do anything in return and I mean anything. I'll work in your toy sweatshop next Christmas season. I'll help you hand out toys. I'll beat up any fake Santa that is ruining your good name. And I'll...well, I'll just give you all things that Mrs. Claus refuses you. I am that serious about wanting this gift for Christmas.

I don't care where you send him, where your beautiful magical powers lands him. I don't even care if its on the Hated Mets. Just please, Santa, let me wake up on Christmas morning knowing that Rodriguez will never join the Hated Boston Red Sox.

Love,
M

P.S. I love you, Santa.

P.P.S. I mean it about that Mrs. Claus thing.

P.P.P.S If you let A-Rod go to the Red Sox, the terrorists win.

I love the smell of Yankee fan panic.

Going to be a grand week:

Sheffield balks at the Yankees and A-Rod goes to the Sox's. What more could you ask for :)

Dear Santa,

Since Michele's beloved Yankees have won about a quarter of the World Series that have been played, I think she should be disqualified from requesting any favors regarding baseball teams.

Also, because there are a lot more Yankees bandwagon ridersHHHHHHHHHHHHHH^H fans in the world, it stands to reason that more Yankees fans than Red Sox fans have been naughty.

I just wanted to point that out.

Thanks for your time,

-M

Geez, couldn't just ask him to smite George Steinbrenner? Probably would be easier.

Careful, you might be eaten by a Grue. :)

don't you think us Red Sox fans have been asking for a World Series from Santa every year for oh, say 80 years???

I actually think that depending on what happens IN ADDITION to the trade (if/when it happens) of Ramirez for A-Rod, it could make a weaker lineup.

IF the Sox hold onto Nomar AND pull the trigger on this trade, it strenghtens the lineup AND the infield (you move Nomar to 2nd, since A-Rod's a better all-around shortstop). If you trade Nomar after making the deal, you've weakened the team and are asking A-Rod, who put up similiar albeit a tad better numbers than Manny last season to replace TWO bats (well, one if you're only looking at the postseason where Nomar was just taking up a slot in the batting order...).

So, it greatly depends on what they do in addition to the the A-Rod move....

Letsee... Shilling passed on the Yanks for the Sox, Sheffeild dissed the Yanks and A-Rod could come play in Boston. Meanwhile, the Yanks got a washed-up former Red Sox closer and a decent pitcher.....

to be continued.

Red Sox fans were served Schilling for Thanksgiving and we may (seems ever more likely) get an A-Rod for Chrismukkah thanks to Uncle Theo.

And the Red Stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in the hope that A-Rod would soon be there...

Rest assured, woman, once we have the Bomb we shall not hesitate to use it.

Out here, we just got a lump of Bavasi in our stockings...but a little Tejada under the tree would make for a happy, happy Christmas.

Now if we can just convince the big guy to drop a little Guerrero down the chimney, all will be well in Latteland.

If A-Rod impacts the Red Sox winning percentage the he did that of the Rangers, you may not have anything to worry about.

On a related note, here's an amusing link to check out.

I think your wish should be for Cashman & Torre to get control back of the team. George is making all the decisions again. That is never a good thing.

Maybe we should start a pool - how many games will Torre survice in 2004? I'm guessing about 30.

All I want for Christmas is the world's best shortstop, the world's best shortstop....

It looks like Pettitte might be going to Houston...but at least you'll have David Wells...

Looks like that Yankee pitching staff is shaping up just fine for next year.

I hate you, Allah. Santa shall smite you.

I hate Santa... Dont like!

Don't worry Michelle. A-Rod is the king of the garbage time home run. The Red Sox are stronger with Manny and Nomar but to get A-Rod, both wil be gone.
