Jose Canseco is a horrible person. He is ignorant, narcissistic,delusional and psychotic. He is the has-been who charges hundreds of dollars for autographs and challenges other washed-up celebrities to fights. He has not played Major League Baseball in 12 years, yet still claims he can hit 40 homers. Sure, buddy.
Canseco has been busy these days -- he plays for the Fort Worth Cats, an independent baseball team that plays in something called the United Baseball League. I am sure the dopes who own the team think that the poster-boy for cheaters might put a few more butts in the seats. To his credit, Canseco has found steady work in independent league baseball for years. He won't give it up, because, well what else is he going to? Box? Star in reality shows? Nope, playing baseball against sub-standard talent is all he has left.
In the latest Canseco news, he has been questioned in a sexual assault case in Las Vegas, where Canseco currently resides. The news was made public when Canseco took to Twitter to announce the information himself. It was not leaked by the media, nor the police, but Canseco made an announcement under his own volition. If you were being investigated for sexual assault, would you feel compelled to announce it to the world?
To make matters worse, Canseco posted the name of the alleged victim and challenged her to take a polygraph test. Canseco has yet to be arrested or charged for any crime. Could it be possible that Canseco made up the whole thing for attention? Who knows?
Canseco did an interview with 105.3 The Fan, based out of Dallas. When the hosts asked Canseco about the sexual assault, he hung up.(The interview can be heard here). Later, Canseco's agent explained that Canseco did not want to talk about the case. Okay, dude, you can share it with the world via Twitter, but cannot answer the question in a radio interview? Sure, makes a lot of sense.
For what is worth, I predicted that Canseco would end up incarcerated at some point. He has some weird obsession with an ex. He has even posted her contact information several times via Twitter My followers and I predicted a murder-suicide was inevitable. An accusation of sexual assault comes as no surprise to me. I hope the charges are false and no woman was exposed to his minuscule genitals against her own free will.
Canseco is a vile, delusional creature. Jose claims he can still mash, but hit a robust .194 in 2012 for the Worcester Tornadoes, who play in something called the Canadian-American Association. He has played in Yuma, Arizona and Laredo, Texas in recent years. The fact that Canseco thinks he can still play professional baseball is quite laughable.
Hopefully Canseco just goes away soon -- the freakshow is losing its luster.
