Remember last year at this time when Jose Canseco urged his "Cansecomaniacs" to write him in for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game? Well...here we go again. Tuesday night, the former big leaguer hit the Twitters and asked his more than 515,000 followers to, you guessed it, send him back to the Big Apple for this year's MidSummer Classic.  Yup, more than a decade after his last big league appearance. But, unlike last year, he's offering an incentive should he get voted in. Oh, before you think that the embattled slugger is doing this for himself...nope.  Think again. I said it before and I'll say it again...I kinda want this to happen.  I mean, the game itself (regardless of whether or not the commish tells us "it counts") is pretty much a joke.  Why not give a starting nod to a write-in candidate? And if the former American League MVP can get each of his Twitter followers to each vote at least ten times...it would be more than enough to earn a starting gig. To write-in Canseco, head on over to MLB.com.  And in case you forgot, this year's All-Star Game will be played July 16 at Citi Field.
