NEW YORK POST By Daniel Halper December 12, 2016
Former Major League slugger Jose Canseco is dangling himself as the home run pick for Federal Reserve chair — or at least ambassador to Cuba.
The big league lobbying — presumably a joke — comes as Canseco, 52, praised President-elect Donald Trump for considering former Mets manager Bobby Valentine as the ambassador to Japan.
“Hey little buddy @realDonaldTrump good pick on Bobby for Japan. I would be open to Ambassador of Cuba job or Fed Chair. See u soon,” the slugger began.
Canseco, who wrote a tell-all book about his steroid usage and rock-star lifestyle in 2005, continued to make his case: “Hey don @realDonaldTrump can help u with press too. When I was CEO of Canseco Financial was on CNBC with @mariabartiromo a lot. Nice lady.”
“Hey brother @realDonaldTrump give me control of the Fed and we will make the economy great again. Dow at 40k in 4 Years. #Yeswecanseco,” he added.
Finally, the ex-A’s bat-man tweeted, “Also amigo @realDonaldTrump keep the people away from S&P index funds — they have REIT crap in them that’s going to burst with rates rising.”
Trump has not yet commented about the offer.
(There are so many thing to love about this. Jose calling the God Emperor his "Little Buddy" like he is the Skipper. Bobby Valentine as ambassador to Japan. Only right since he was just as good a baseball manager as Caroline Kennedy. Best of all is putting Jose in charge of our money since he did so great with his own. Poetry I tell.
Only top men for the Trump Administration. Top men I tell ya.)
