BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, AUGUST 17, 2012 Page 15 Romney Picks Ryan (Continued from Page 2) think use of teleprompter. Fifty-three percent of the American voters chose Barack Obama in 2008. Most Republican leaders do believe that John McCain's 47 percent four years ago will be Romney's base. If everyone who voted Repub- lican repeats his or her vote and Romney doesn't try really hard to reach out to independents and so-called Reagan Democrats, Presi- dent Obama gets a second term. Apparently, Romney thinks that this election will turn on the economy and sees Ryan as the policy guy when it comes to the government budget and dealing with issues to turn the economy around after almost four years of failed ideas and dead leadership. My personal choice like Howie Carr's looked like Rubio but apparently Rom- ney seemingly feels that so- cial issues don't carry the same bite in a tight election as a recession and chronic joblessness when it comes to the American people's anger. Romney could be making a bigger mistake than McCain's choice of Sarah Palin in 2008. Ryan adds little if anything to the strength of this ticket among hard-line conservatives. In order for Romney to do what McCain or Bob Dole in 1996 couldn't do, he would have to add to the GOP base vote. Does Ryan bring in vot- ers who would not have voted for Romney anyway? Does Ryan help in swing states like Michigan, Ohio, Penn- sylvania, Florida or Wis- consin where Ryan hails from? In 1980, Ronald Reagan, a former two-year term gover- nor from California, took on a sitting president after hav- ing been double digits behind President Carter. In that case, Carter was perceived as a failed leader and Reagan came along with both ideas and passion for them. He spoke from his heart and connected with conservative Republicans, with middle-class families and blue collar workers. He managed to put together a winning coalition based on hope and not fear. A grand majority of voters in 1980 weren't voting against Carter as much as they vot- ing for Reagan to pick up the country and get it moving again. His choice for vice presi- dent was George H. W. Bush who represented the more moderate or liberal wing of the GOP. Reagan knew con- servatives alone could not ring up victory. The merging of the Bush and Reagan wings of the Republican Party and all those Reagan Democrats out there in the country put Reagan over the top. Ryan is a smart guy, a policy guy but is Ryan a regular guy anymore than Romney is perceived to be? Romney/Ryan is not Reagan/Bush and in the end that is all that counts between winning and losing. America can't afford to lose in 2012.

Last year, Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander won 25 games on his way to be- ing last year's shoo-in for the Cy Young Award winner. This season, however, he has had his troubles on the mound. As of August 13, he s still good with his 2.46 RA, but his record is 12-7. /erlander's recently lost gainst the Red Sox after he pitched five innings and gave up three earned runs in the rain-shortened game is proof positive that there will be no Cy Young for him again this season. It is rare that any pitcher wins back- to-back Cy Young Awards or even has a good season. In 1956, Don Newcombe from the Brooklyn Dodgers won the Cy Young going 27-7 with a 3.07 ERA. The following season, he was 11-12 with a .3.49 ERA. In 1971, Vida Blue for the A's won it with a 24-8 and 1.82 ERA but the follow- ing year went 6-10 with a 2.80 ERA. In 1968, Denny McLain for the Tigers won his Cy Young going 31-6 with a 1.96 ERA, but the following year was 24-9 with a 2.80. The last AL pitcher to win the Cy Young Award two years running was Roger Clemens for the Sox. He was 24-4 with 2.48 ERA in 1986 and 20-9 ith a 2.97 ERA, winning in 1987. Only Randy Johnson did the unthinkable between 1999 and 2002, winning four NL Cy Young Awards.

DeCdstofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 8/17/12 EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani 22 year career in baseball. He was a 6' 10" fireballer but in the beginning he was a bit wild issuing too many walks and therefore too many runs. After the 1992 season at age 28, his record was only 56-61, not Hall of Fame material or even close. He was a Mariner at the time and had just led the AL in walks for three years run- ning. He turned to another great fireballer, Nolan Ryan for help. Ryan at the time was 40-something but still pitching well. Johnson who is now 48 years old stated that his height was part of his control problem saying, 'If you're a pitcher and you're not consistent with your re- lease point, you're not going to be consistent in the strike zone." When Johnson went over to the Texas Rangers his pitching coach found other flaws. So Johnson worked on those identified problems with his pitching delivery. He cut down on the walks and threw the ball with far greater velocity. From that point on, he went 247-105. Pitching from 1988 to 2009, he fin- ished 303-166 with a life- time 3.29 ERA. He is only one of 24 pitchers to win 300 games and earned four straight NL Cy Young Awards with Arizona and the Diamond- backs from 1999 to 2002. He finished his career with 4,875 strikeouts which is second to Nolan Ryan's 5,714. He pitched a no-hit- ter for the Mariners in 1990 and a perfect game in Arizona in 2004. He will be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2015 and surely is a shoo-in that year for Cooperstown. He started his career with the Montreal Expos and made his big league debut in 1988. However, it wasn't until 1993 that the great- ness broke out. He went 19- 8 with a 3.24 ERA and had the first of six straight 300 strikeout seasons.

As Johnson has said, "You have to put the time and effort into whatever you're doing to be good at it. There are no shortcuts to being really good at what you do." Johnson was really good at what he did! Can We Make Post-season? If I were a betting man, I would say most improbably not. This Boston Red Sox team needs between 92-90 wins to get there which can only happen if they turn things around and win on a regular basis both at home and on the road. Their re- cent road trip where they won two out of three from both the Yankees and Rang- ers was good indeed but can they sustain this kind of luck down the stretch few believe. One sports writer called this team the "win one, lose one and win one more Red Sox." On August 2 with a 53-52 record fighting it out for last place with the seemingly hapless Toronto Blue Jays, getting into the playoffs seems like a dream most likely not to happen. I never say never with our present watered-down ver- sion of major league baseball but I would be totally surprised if they go to post- season. The Surprising Orioles The Baltimore Orioles keep hanging in there in third place after many sea- sons of horrible baseball. During the tail-end of last season, I blamed the team's plight on the awful looking bird profile on their hat. To my amazement, the Orioles announced at the end of the season that the old bird baseball head was returning in a slightly updated version. Since .the bird head re- turned, the team has acted like a winner once again like back in the days of Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson and Jim Palmer. The black and orange are back in baseball.
