José Canseco Lobbies To Become Next FED Chairman

Just when you thought 2016 could not get any weirder—enter José Canseco. The former Red Sox slugger (for two seasons, anyway) has gone on Twitter to induce President-Elect Donald Trump to appoint him as Chairman of The Federal Reserve Bank. You can get up now. Hey, if Bobby Valentine is qualified to be Ambassador to Japan, why can José play, too? Oddly, Canseco has been known to weigh-in on world economic issues in the past—he's even appeared on CNBC to spout his opinions. Since current Fed Chair Janet Yellen is safely in her spot until 2018, Canseco is also putting himself in-line for another post—Ambassador to Cuba. Again, folks, you just can't make this stuff up.
