MLB.com Are you rooting against a White Christmas for professional reasons? Would snow complicate your job?
Sherry: Personally, I am rooting against a White Christmas because I need to travel home to Delaware. But the grass definitely benefits from a thick layer of snow. It's insulation for the roots.
MLB.com Do any special years of Christmas stand out in your memory? Did you get a pony when you were 12?
Sherry: My cool BMX bike was stolen one year and Santa brought me a 10-speed! Greatest gift ever! I never got a pony, but I got a Matchbox car the year I turned 16. My parents told me they had a huge gift for me, so I of course looked outside for the car. But instead they handed me the smallest box ever and said, 'Don't forget to wear your seatbelt!'
MLB.com: Do you have any favorite Christmas movies? Any that you make sure to watch every year?
Sherry: A Christmas Story. Haha. 'Fra-gil-e. Must be Italian!' Gets me every time!
MLB.com: How about music? Are you bumping 'The Chipmunks sing Christmas carols' all December?
Sherry: I rock out to the Star Wars Christmas album. Oh, it does exist!
MLB.com: When does the holiday season start for you? Are you ready for Christmas right after Thanksgiving?
Sherry: The season starts for me on March 1. Wait -- you meant Christmas? That starts now. I shop last minute.
MLB.com: Do you drink eggnog like it's going out of style or make a mean Christmas ham?
Sherry: I am a sweets fan, myself. I love chocolate chip cookies, fudge, pitzels, cheese cake. I could go on and on! It seems as if this time of year is when everyone makes that stuff. PS: Eggnog is gross!
MLB.com: Are you ready for baseball again? Have you gotten a good breather over the past three months?
Sherry: Right now I am enjoying this "offseason" so I am not ready for baseball to start just yet. That usually hits around February. I'm taking a vacation, finally, right now! Happy Holidays!
