If everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame, Jose Canseco‘s watch has been broken for years.
It didn’t take long for Canseco to take to Twitter after news of longtime Detroit bench boss Jim Leyland‘s resignation went public. Canseco has made a name for himself on Twitter in recent years for his diatribes against Shaquille O’Neal and general thoughts about science and immortality. After news of Leyland’s resignation went live, Canseco wanted everybody to know he was the man for the job.
Like many of Canseco’s Twitter rants, his messages to the Tigers and GM and team president Dave Dombrowski run the gamut from giddily childish — “Hello Detroit @tigers it is Cansecotime! #motorcityseco #Cantiger” — to hopelessly desperate — “Who am I kidding. I just want a shot in any level. Who can help me.”
It seem as if Canseco can’t go two weeks without an outburst on Twitter. At least this time, Canseco wasn’t tearing into Little League umpires.

Manuel, 68, was let go by the Phillies after 9 years of service this past August. He was part of Philadelphia’s old regime of coaches, all of whom have been replaced.

In Game 2 of the ALCS, Max Scherzer was utterly dominating, striking out 13 of the 25 Red Sox batters he faced. Despite all the strikeouts, he managed to get through seven innings on just 108 pitches, mixing in some efficiency with his ability to avoid contact. The Tigers held a 5-1 lead when Scherzer was replaced to start the top of the 8th inning; by the time the inning was over...
The iconic snapshot of the just-completed ALCS is a Boston cop named Steve Horgan arms raised in a V in the Red Sox bullpen in front of Torii Hunter his torso obscured by the low wall his legs straight up.
Hunter nearly made a catch for the ages. Almost snared a bases-loaded two-out liner off David Ortiz’s bat — his effort maximum. Had he caught it and preserved a 5-1 eighth...
If this was a year ago current Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona would have been the new manager of the Detroit Tigers. If Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire had been fired and not signed a new two-year contract he very well might be the new Tigers manager.
Things being as they are neither of these two excellent managers will be wearing the Old English D anytime soon....
