Wish list for the coming year
For David Toms, another PGA Tour victory or two. Toms is one of sports' good guys and it's always nice to see those guys rewarded.
For Todd Walker, a win in arbitration if it goes that far and a season of meaningful at-bats with the San Diego Padres.
For B.J. Ryan, a September filled with meaningful saves. For Ryan's teammate Vernon Wells, a Shreveport native, a chance for baseball fans to see just how good he really is.
For Scott Baker, no trips back to Rochester.
For Arnaz Battle, continued improvement for himself and the 49ers.
For Stromile Swift, a chance to contribute to a playoff team that won't bow out in 4 games.
Most importantly, for local sports fans, a 2007 that somehow tops the memories of 2006.
