The title George put on my latest column is misspelled. It should be "Diminished Claus."

In case you're unfamiliar with the legend, he's a character who comes every Christmas taking toys away from the good little boys and girls." It is rumored that The Chairman is his direct descendent.

:reinsy

"Ho! Ho! Ho! And what would you like me to take away from you, little boy?"

What kind of person says, “Look I want you long term because I like you, but if you fail to produce, I’ll still give you the money, but I’ll defer all but a scrub’s salary until after the contract has expired. So I really don’t think you should sign this. Here’s the pen”?

Santa's lesser known evil brother that's who. I guess this makes KW an evil elf, but we already knew that now didn't we?

"Coal for all the Sox fans because this mess is all their fault!"

"On rookie, on low-pay, on cheap rehab pitchers. On minimum wagers and away with the bitchers. I'll cut Big Franks salary and chase him away and then JR will give me a cut of his pay. I'll lowball Mark Buehrle and when he complains I'll cut his pay further and laugh at his pain. I'll not pay a penny to upgrade this team. We won't win a thing, not even in dreams. And when they all ask me, I'll just quote Jerry - 'It's all the fans fault' that makes him quite merry."

Think we can find a way to defer some of that money Magglio is making, he can't be worth it. Nobody is."

:KW
"I'll work on a trade. I'll try to get it done before the holidaze, so you can spend the extra money on a new Mercedes for the kids for X-mas."

:reinsy
"better trade Konerko too. those cars are expensive, but if you save me enough money, I'll get you a Kia."

:ohno
"Please, Mr Grinch, don't steal our X-mas."

:reinsy
"HOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO!!! Here's that coal I mentioned. We resigned Canseco and offered a contract to Mike Sirotka - I figure he can be the opening day starter. Heck, I want to bring back Singleton too, since Baltimore clearly can't see a cheap... er... talented player when they have one. Merry X-mas, Sox Fans and to all a good night..."
