First you give thanks for all you have — a beautiful wife, a healthy and hale son, and a job you like — and then you think about including others beyond your inner-most circle. Or at least that’s what Thanksgiving should be all about, since the first feast was one that featured both thanks and inclusiveness as important values.
In a short week, I did short work. Jason Heyward as Mike Trout was the first idea, because we’ve been lauding Mike Trout for his all-around game and Heyward can do something similar, if not as fantastic. And then I wrote up Japanese reliever Kyuji Fujikawa, who is on his way state-bound. He could be a closer for the right team.
Happy vacation everyone!
