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.

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

It looks like drunken typing to me. Does Canseco like to booze?

Canseco begs Alderson for a job

Jose Canseco ruined the game of baseball and he expects MLB to give him a job? No, if Alderson hires Canseco Bud Selig will "kindly" ask that Alderson step down as GM of the Mets and reassign him to a job in Siberia. 
Jose Canseco should ask Julian Assange for a job since both people don't care about the consequences of their actions.
