  • Players for President

    In light of the elections ending, which guys would you choose for president since 1872 (an election year)? Men with charm, charisma, intellect, and great communication skills. Only two rules: people can only serve maximum 8 years and must have been playing or managing in the MLB during the years you choose. Feel free to add other stuff like vice presidents.

    1872-1876: Jim O'Rourke
    1880-1888: Monte Ward
    1888-1892: Wilbert Robinson
    1892-1896: Connie Mack
    1896-1900: ? (Mack again?)
    1900-1908: Christy Mathewson
    1908-1916: Eddie Collins
    1916-1920: ?
    1920-1928: Frankie Frisch?
    1928-1936: Mickey Cochrane
    1936-1940: Bill Dickey?
    1940-1944: ?
    1948-1956: Phil Rizzuto
    1956-1964: Gil Hodges
    1964-1968: ?
    1968-1976: Don Sutton?
    .
    .
    .
    1992-1996: Greg Maddux
    1996-2000: Joe Torre
    2000-2004: Greg Maddux
    2004-2012: Derek Jeter

    This is done in haste. Feel free to refute me

    Steve Garvey looked like he was always ready to run for office back in the 70's. Jim Palmer and Tom Seaver would also have been good candidates. And everybody loved Willie Stargell.

    I never thought of Greg Maddux as the Grover Cleveland of MLB.

      Maybe Grover Cleveland Alexander should be the guy getting two terms!

        I would have voted Charlie Gehringer over Mickey Cochrane.

        "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

            I think Joe Maddon could make a good president for the 21st century.

            And since Nolan Ryan pitched for decades, you could put him in from 1976 to 1992.
            The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

              Gehringer had zero charisma
