We are in the season where children provide their Christmas “wish list” and adults make resolutions for the New Year and also make “wish lists.” With that being said, lets take a sneak peek on what may be on your favourite Jays “wish list” and what their resolution may be.
Wish: A seamless transition back to the American League after a year in Miami.
Resolution: To find a way to bring his pet pit bull to Ontario.
W: To never have someone mistakenly call him “Josh Towers.”
R: To stay healthy and return to his previous all-star form.
W: That the Rogers Centre converts to natural grass to save his knees.
R: To continue to be one of the best all-around shortstops in the game and have fans chant “Jose, Jose, Jose, Jose” for him as well.
W: That the changes made to the roster give him a shot to make the playoffs for the first time.
R: To again dominate and maintain the best home-run-bat-flip stare in all of baseball.
W: To pick his aggressive spots and not throw helmets at umpires.
R: When faced with adversity, think “Serenity Now!”
W: To have people call him “J.A. Happ,” not “Jay Happ.”
R: Solidify the #5 spot and learn from veterans Buehrle and Romero.
W: That his season is as good as great as the movie “Lincoln.”
R: Maintain the momentum from the 2012 season. And avoid going to plays.
W: That the next time he takes steroids, make sure the web site is more legit.
R: Prove to the doubters that his good seasons were not a fluke. And take a “Web Site Design” course.
W: That people never bring up the cornrows.
R: Spend more time in the batting cage and focus on making contact and raising the average then in the hair salon.
W: That his moves pay off and the playoffs become a reality.
R: Make wish happen and tell reporters “King Kong aint got sh*t on me.”
W: That the money they have been unwilling to spend for years brings in even more money for them.
R: Raise beer prices to compensate for increased payroll.
W: Playoffs, cheaper beer, some Saturday night games.
R: Boo John Farrell at every opportunity.
That is a list I had the privilege of seeing and thought as my gift to you I would share it. I hope all of you have a happy holidays and a great new year.
