The Worcester Tornadoes of the Can-Am League decided to sign Jose Canseco last week, but they say the move is not a gimmick. No joke.
“I don’t really think it’s appropriate to have a gimmick, so we talked for a couple of weeks and I wanted to make sure he was committed and in shape and was serious about playing baseball,” owner Todd Breighner said of the signing. “I wanted to feel that we wouldn’t have a situation (where he leaves a team abruptly). There are no guarantees, but I do have a reasonable comfort level that he wants to be here.”
The Tornadoes say they actually got the idea to sign Canseco after hearing on a radio program that the former slugger was looking for a new place to play following his departure from the Mexican League. Canseco had tweeted how much he loved his time in Boston, the Tornadoes heard that, so they initiated contact with the crazy man.

We are all familiar with the insane and most of the time indecipherable Twitter feed of @JoseCanseco. Things got even more weird when Canseco took to Twitter to try and find some girls to date. The responses to Canseco’s tweet are absolutely hilarious. It’s mostly girls responding with “BLOCKED” or “You’re Crazy”. I highly suggest you follow this feed for the humor...

Here’s hoping that Canseco goes on another profanity-laced Twitter rant in response to this attack.
