When Saint Nick comes down the chimney at Coors Field later tonight, I’m sure he’ll find the cookies and milk left behind by Dinger. Hopefully he will also find a list of gift ideas left behind by the Colorado Rockies.
Now certainly there are plenty of things that the Colorado Rockies could have requested from Santa Claus. Among them, maybe, just maybe, are a few teams willing to make some trades and relieve some of the budget crunch. Oh, and another catcher would be nice as well. We would ask for a lot more (including a winning record, playoff berth, World Series win, all of that) … but we know those gifts likely won’t come until a new television contract kicks in after this season.
Also, Santa, would you mind getting rid of all of these Nolan Arenado rumors as well? That would be one of the best gifts Rockies fans could receive.
OK, maybe we’re asking for too much. Let’s focus on just three things that would be great for the big man in red to leave behind before he zooms back to the North Pole. And these are also things some of which can happen now … and some can happen in 2020.
We’ve made our list and we’ve checked it twice. Here’s our wish list from Santa Claus.
