ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Still undecided on who you think should be the next President of the United States?
The St. Louis Cardinals have a few options to consider, after former pitcher Kyle McClellan went to find out who inside the Cardinals clubhouse would make the best candidate for POTUS.
The segment ran on the Mark Reardon Show and started with the ace of the staff, Adam Wainwright. And he had some pretty strong words about the current political situation in the U.S.
“I just get so sick and tired of this crappy politicking that people, they can’t see the good in things and work together,” Wainwright says. “It makes me want to run for office…We need somebody honest in the office you know.”
Here are the answers given by some of the other Cardinals players:
Wainwright: Me. VP- Carlos Martinez. “You need somebody strapping and can go out and be vibrant and promote and meet the people and shake hands. Of the United States? Because Carlos (Martinez) would be great at that.”
Mike Matheny: Wainwright. “He knows when to turn on the charm.” VP: Matt Holliday. “They banter well and it usually draws some good conversations.”
Matt Carpenter: Wainwright. “I think he’s kinda like a politician anyway. You know he’s a social butterfly.” VP: Trevor Rosenthal. “Vice presidents are usually a bit of a wack job.”
Matt Holliday: Stephen Piscotty. “Stanford educated, seems very even keel, probably knows a lot more about politics than the rest of us. I think he’s the easy choice.” VP: Allen Craig. “I know he’s gone but Allen was a super smart cat and very well educated… So he can take Allen out of Boston.”
And when Holliday was told that Wainwright nominated himself, he had a hilarious answer.
“Well that’s dumb. He’s not educated,” Holliday says. “He’s got a lot of work to do.”
Holliday, if you don’t return to the Cardinals this season, St. Louis will miss you. Thanks for at least one more laugh.
