It’s a slow week in the baseball world and it’s Christmas, so why not combine the two? In honor of one of the busiest off-seasons we’ve seen in a long time, here are The Twelve Days of Hot Stove. Because any time you can take the words of a famous Christmas carol and replace them with baseball terms, you have to do it. Now get yourself some hot chocolate, a hot toddy or your favorite holiday beverage and sing along to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas. Happy Holidays!
