Jose Canseco Watches ‘Moneyball,’ Begs Billy Beane for Chance to DH
Watch out world: Jose Canseco wants to play in the big leagues again. Apparently that’s what happens when someone like him gets their hands on the movie Moneyball. According to his Twitter account, Canseco watched the movie for the first time on Sunday night. In the process, he developed a man crush for Billy Beane and a desire to return to the MLB as a designated hitter. The passion is burning so deep within Jose that he was even willing to tweet out his email address to all 397,954 followers. Check out this hilarious string of tweets:
Come on, Billy. Give the guy a chance. It sounds like Canseco is willing to play for next to nothing, and maybe he still has a couple of home runs left in him. Plus, it beats having to see him flipping out on fans, getting it handed to him by a 60-year old, or flaking out on a scheduled boxing match. Make it happen, Billy. The A’s need this type of heartfelt inspiration from a stand-up citizen.
