Is Jose Canseco OK?

Postby Kim Bhasin » Fri Dec 17, 2010 7:34 pm

If you follow him on Twitter you probably watched his meltdown, the climax of which was:

"I guess I wrote the book juiced out of blind anger cause baseball was taken away from me.I am truly sorry for that"

Now he wants to come back and play too. Check the tone of his tweets, its kind of... solemn? depressing?


Here's his Twitter feed, read it, its strange: http://twitter.com/#!/JoseCanseco

HardballTalk article has more on it: http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/ ... ng-juiced/

He hasn't been healthy mentally for a decade. Some would say two decades.

he is crazy. I read the book, and it was considering the source -- well written considering the source. But his accusations as they were seemed pretty spot on. I think he was somewhat validated considering. But what a huge idiot by and large.

His head is full of rocks but he's at least interesting. And not far off with what he's saying about guys like McGwire and Bonds. They're really getting the shaft despite being amongst the best all time. Could he come back and be a good hitter right now? I say Uncle Rico is delusional, but we probably won't get the chance to see him proven wrong.

Poor Jose; regardless of his faults, as long as he doesn't go and pull a Mel Gibson or OJ Simpson, he'll always be one of my all time favorites.

Yeah, It was either that, or the ball bouncing off his skull that triggered it ...

If your brain hangs between your legs, steroids will have that effect.
