What I'm Thankful For

Cole Hamels’ gorgeous changeup.
How Cole always keeps his cool.
The bubbling gut of the fiery Brett Myers.
The 12-6 curveball.
The second half resurgence.
Acquiring Joe Blanton.
Swatting a no-doubter home run in game four of the World Series.
Veteran leadership.
Grizzled pitching — a slow fastball, a slower changeup.
The diving grab and soft toss in game three.
Young heat.
Placing a perfect changeup.
Sticking with the team for 162 games as the final pitcher on roster.
The name Clay.
The name Rudy.
Black belts.
Dim the Lights.
A first half of untouchable proportions.
The left-handed specialist.
Outspoken heat against Bud Selig.
The Savior.
The Savior’s fire.
Chooch. Mother-freakin’ Chooch.
The squib hit.
Catching a gorgeous game.
Blast. Off.
A September to remember.
Another MVP season.
And another MVP season.
And another MVP season.
The best second baseman alive.
Playing on a broken hip.
The throw to home.
Petey Happy.
Running your mouth.
100 wins.
The Brunt.
The Bat.
One final double off the wall.
The breakout of the Flyin’ Hawaiian.
A tying home run.
Matt Stairs!
The resurgence of Jayson Werth.
Long legs.
The architect, Wade.
The finisher, Gillick.
Trust the gut.
June Manuel.
Mad Dog, a postseason warrior.
The 96 mph fastball.
Lights Out.
See ya.
Three to one.
Four to one.
Being World Champions of Baseball.

That’s what I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.
