Ralph also responded to a question I asked about whether or not he could pull off a Red Sox miracle and whether or not he really wanted to be President. He said that he does want to be President but is realistic about his chances in this election. He commented that "the Red Sox had been able to do it because they were playing on a level playing field. For him, it was as if he had to pitch from 500 feet off the field. "
It is little known that Ralph was a first baseman when he was growing up in his hometown of Winsted, Connecticut. His first baseman's mit was remembered by a fellow Winsted resident recently in another article posted on this site.
Welcome to MichaelMoore.com! I stronly disagree with Michael Moore's conclusions about who has the best chance to turn things around in America... but he is doing a lot of positive things to get people involved in this election, so I can't really fault him for that.
After all, he has only one vote, as do I, as does Ralph, as does George, as does John, as does Arnold, as does Maria, as does Bruce, as do you
and we are all just trying to do the best that we can for America.

A look at Nader’s Winsted
By LAURA WALSH
Associated Press Writer
WINSTED -- A first baseman’s glove is what comes to mind when anyone asks Fred Silverio to describe his friend Ralph Nader...
I kept trying to think of how Ralph Nader could be like a first baseman's mit. I came up with a few but eventually clicked through and found out that the writer meant her comment totally differently than I took it. Still, I thought that I would share some of my thoughts with you:
"Why Ralph Nader is Like a First Baseman's Mit"
He helps you reach for wild throws.
He is well suited to be involved in nearly every play made on the field.
He enables you to firmly tag your opponents.
Enemies run away from his tag.
Neighbors remember you fondly.
People invite you on the David Letterman show if you have one.
Nicknames like "Stretch" are yours for the taking.
Though you have made 10,000 sure plays, you may get blamed if the rest of your teammates don't deliver and you let one slip past.
Red Sox fans have a special place in their heart for you.
You can still help 70 year old little boys remember how to play.
That's not so bad. Of course, that's not what the gentleman had in mind. He just remembered that Ralph was the only guy who had such a mit.
My Dad is the same age as Ralph. My Dad has always had a first baseman's mit. Guess I'll have to think of both my Dad and Ralph Nader every time I see a first baseman play.
Come to think of it, my Dad is an awful lot like Ralph but my Dad was born three months before Ralph so Ralph is an Aquarius while my Dad is a Scorpio. (Do Scorpios make better first basemen than Aquarians?)
Maybe Ralph still has the mit-- My Dad has his.
Well, they both gave up playing baseball a long time ago. At least they are both still ready to play.
