PLAYERS: Jose Canseco

Sometimes, I lie awake at night wondering.  I wonder about a simpler time with no Twitter, Facebook...nothing.  Then, well, then Jose Canseco goes on social media crusade to clear his name. Wednesday, Canseco hit the Twittersphere claiming he's been accused of rape.  Now, I'm not trying to make light of the situation, because, however this plays out, it's a pretty terrible ordeal for all involved.  But, here are the series of tweets (that have since been deleted) that started the firestorm. After deleting the series of tweets, Canseco has since posted a picture of his alleged accuser Susie Bell, her phone number and offered to take a polygraph test on live television. This should all make for an interesting week in Fort Worth, Texas and an even more interesting episode of "Canseco Knows Best".
