Yes, I believe he should throw his cap into the ring. Consider all his positives:
* Consistent (notched his fourth consecutive postseason win tonight)
* Cool under pressure (only surrendered two runs over seven innings)
* Connects with “real Americans” (not just Pennsylvanians but Joe the Plumber too)
* Can really multitask (once pitched while trick-or-treating for Halloween)
* Appeals to women (obviously).
Does he have the experience to be president? That’s what you’re asking yourself. It’s true that he’s just 24 and has pitched in the majors for a mere two seasons. But don’t we need change? Someone who can inspire us with his youth and vigor? I mean, we’ve had years and years of Jamie Moyer and are we really better off?
Oops. There’s a problem with his candidacy. He doesn’t sound presidential. Not at all. Have a look.
But seriously. He did a great job tonight keeping the Rays under control. I’d take him in a nanosecond if he ever wanted to play for the Yankees. Duh.
