It started with a simple line, "I am going to play this year." That Twitter post came at about 7:45 PM this past Sunday night, but apparently Jose Canseco's night was just getting started. About 15 minutes later, Canseco, undoubtedly reacting to news that the A's had interest in grizzled veteran Manny Ramirez, sent out a plea to Oakland's GM, Blliy Beane.
Now, that might seem like a desperate move to some of you, but apparently that wasn't desperate enough for Mr. Canseco. Nope, he decided to take it one step further and post his email address on a social network in which he has almost 400,000 followers.
At that point -- ignoring the fact that he refused to capitalize Billy Beane's last name -- biceps and pectorals swollen and greased up like Rocky Balboa, Canseco apparently took to the batting cage and started hacking away into the night.
