Canseco begs Alderson for a job

Posted on: December 13, 2010 6:51 pm
 
I know we wrote about this the other day, but it's a slow day and Jose Canseco is the gift that keeps on giving.

His latest? He's gone on Twitter and personally asked Sandy Alderson for a chance to play first base for the Mets.

Jose Caseco

OK, where to start?

Let's just say Canseco can still swing the bat as he did the last time he played (2001 ad forget that 10 years has a negative effect on physical skills (especially from 36 to 46). So, that year he hit 16 home runs in 256 at-bats for the White Sox and put up a slash line of .258/.366/.477.

Sorry Jose, but Ike Davis hit .264/.351/.440 with 19 home runs and 71 RBI in 147 games as a rookie in 2010. I'm think it'll be tough for any 46-year old to match that.

But hey, keep on beleivinging.

Canseco begs Alderson for a job

Eh, why the hell not?

It's not like the Mets have ever signed a washed-up, (alleged) PED using, clubhouse cancer and all-around malcontent to chase his own personal glory (aka 500th HR) before.

Dude(lumpoco).....you got it all wrong! Canseco didnt ruin baseball. George Steinbrenner had more to do with ruining baseball than anyone. Thats my opinion. But Canseco? C-mon What exactly did he do? He told the truth. When others (palmeiro, McGuire, Sosa, Clemons) lied. They lied and got caught. Some are sorry and some of them are not. Jose is a big dummy, thats no joke. But he didnt do worse than many in the Bigs including the biggest ruiner of baseball Bud Selig. Wake up!

hey your hero Jose happened to use that exact speeling in his twitter post, so more of a stab at your boys spelling than anything. By the way if a prostitute were to point out to the local police where the nearest whore house is, I'm prietty sure that doesn't make her any less of a whore. Please Jose is a joke.

Canseco begs Alderson for a job

My favorite Canseco story occurred just a few years ago.  He was desperately trying to stay in the public eye (as many runaway egos tend to do), and arranged a boxing match with former NFL punt returner and currect Philly sportscaster Vai Sikahema.  If you looked at the two of them together, you'd have thought that Canseco would win easily, since he outweighs Sikahema by about 100 lbs and is probably a foot taller.  Well, Vai put a seriour a$$-whuppin on Canseco.  I believe Canseco is now retired from boxing as well.

I would think that you would proof read your post before you make fun of Jose's grammar.
And Canseco didn't ruin baseball, he just exposed what the writters and GM's knew about (or should have) but were too afraid to act.

There are plenty of things to poke fun of Canseco for, but if C. Trent Rosecrans is going to make fun of how Canseco spells on Twitter, he should damn well make sure he spells "thinking" correctly on his blog!

Well I hope his remaining baseball skills are better than his grammar skill.

With Canseco's spelling ability, it's no wonder he's resorting to begging for a job, any job.

Not sure of the statline, and it's probably not worth looking up, but he did come back in a really small independent league with a team called the Laredo Broncos. Of course a team like that would sign him for the attendance but yeah, Canseco is a waste.

I wouldn't say he ruined the game he just exposed a lot that people didn't want to hear.

I hate corruption and cheating in professional sports and it's so widespread it's sick.
