I'm asking Santa for solid play in Center Field and the bottom of the rotation to step up and fill the void left by Garland's departure. What are you asking Santa for?

Another solid starter is at the top of my list, with a solid leadoff hitter (ideally also a center fielder, but will take anything) a close second. Of course, if they listen to today's Tribune (which thankfully KW doesn't) all we'll get is a Cabrera extension.

A nice pickup if they'll take Crede & some prospects, but not worth another starter or Konerko.

Pie. Rowand will bring more pie....to San Francisco.

A FA signing so the dark clouds will come out again.

A center fielder, a left fielder, someone to help out Jenks in the 'pen, a backup catcher, three new announcers (keep Hawk), someone to teach Jerry Owens how to bunt and season tickets behind the plate.

Oh, yeah. How about another World Championship?

Other than that, I'm cool.

I'll ask for Danks and Floyd to come through in a big way... because regardless of who is in CF this season is gonna be riding on them.

I want to see the Sox trade for Bedard and B. Roberts. I say trade Crede/Uribe/Owens/Sweeney/Gio/Anderson/Richer and possibly other young arm. The O's have holes all over the place. Owens or Sweeney could start for them. I think Crede would be an upgrade over Mora, who I think can play other positions. Uribe is an upgrade over their current SS, or they could have Uribe and Richar battle out for 2B.

Bedard and Roberts helps out in areas that the Sox need, especially with Roberts as a leadoff hitter.

A healthy Joe Crede who plays his way into a long-term deal to keep him in the White Sox infield.

I want Uncle Jerry to be visited by the ghost of farm system past, the ghost of farm system present, and the ghost of farm system future, and I hope in the end he decides to encourage his GM to draft who his scouts see as the best prospects regardless of agents, MLB contracts, or signing bonuses. Also spending more money internationally would help too.

An improved Danks and Floyd, a proven starter, and a consistent Jerry Owens.

I'd like a legit LF, CF, 2B, #3 starter, 2 good bullpen guys and one of those postion players needs to be a good leadoff hitter. I'd rather take a lump of coal, and save those hopes for a future season, than go with only 1 or 2 of those wishes.....

And as long as I'm wishing, add paying above slot to sign some players with upside into the farm system rather than sticking with status quo.

I would like for a few of these young arms to come together into a killer starting unit w/ Buehrle and Vazquez acting as the veteran anchors.

.....and to finally silence Moronotti about how much we suck or are going to suck.

The Sox win - it's a fluke, and they're a second tier team.

The Sox lose - they don't know how to win, and they're a second tier team.

The Windsock would have to lose his job, or die, for him to shut his piehole.

If that happens, I would also expect Santa to come down the chimney with the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy. But, it is Christmas and we can ask for anything.

Why do we need a backup catcher? We have Toby Hall signed and he's making decent money, I don't think many teams are in the market for a guy like that. Leave the guy alone, he should be healthy now and will be more productive. I love how everyone expects their backup catcher to hit .330 and throw out 95% of baserunners. If someone was that good they would be starting somewhere. Would you rather we bring back Ben Davis? Gustavo Molina? Mark Johnson?

BA to grow up, start hitting and solve the centerfield issue and Floyd and Danks to reach their potential.

This is what I want too. I have faith that a centerfield youth movement will be just fine. I want solid pitching all the way around.

My White Sox Christmas Wish List:

- Someone to magically fill our gaping hole in CF
- Richar, Fields, Quentin, Danks, and Floyd to all live up to their potential in '08
- For Contreras to bounce back.
- For Buehrle and Vazquez to repeat their '07 performance.
- For a vastly improved bullpen including: Jenks having another great year, Linebrink being great for us, Thornton rebounding from lackluster '07, Wasserman picking up where he left off last year, Logan becoming a decent LOOGY, and one other person to be a serviceable part of our pen.

Sort of a tall order, but we'll see.

Maybe I should have been a little more specific with my wish list in that most of all I want some depth in the bullpen and some bigtime clutch hitters. :bandance:

1. A center fielder.
a. Aquired in a trade involving Uribe.
b. with a bat
2. A comeback year for Joe Crede
3. A starter to replace Garland
4. Joe Jackson to Hall of Fame (obviously requires a few steps)

* Kenny Williams to stop acting like a pompous ass
* Darrin Jackson to change careers
* A new centerfielder who can actually put up some numbers
* Kenny Williams to stop trading away good prospects named Chris
* Hawk to stop talking about Kaline, Yaz and Sudden Sam McDowell
* Eric Bedard
* The entire Sox organization to get their collective heads out of their asses
realize that the rest of the division has gotten a lot better and that the
Cubs are putting themselves in a position to own this town again
