Jose Canseco plays Mr. Irrelevant

Nov 7, 2009, 11:41 AM EDT

high-life as a member of the newly-crowned World Series Champion
Yankees, a person from his past just refuses to go away.




During a weigh-in leading up to
a celebrity boxing match in Springfield, Mass. this week, Jose Canseco told a
reporter from Masslive.com
which baseball player he’d love to square off with in the ring:


“Secondly, who I would love to fight the most if I could pick a
baseball player? Alex Rodriguez, get your ass in the ring and I’ll beat
you to a pulp. Definitely that lying little idiot. I’d like to get him
in the ring.”



Canseco brings a whole new meaning to the term rope-a-dope.

    Canseco ‘s a DOPE alright in more ways than one. Great comment “Canseco brings a whole new meaning to the term rope-a-dope.”

    what is wrong with the Media? Do you think that people really care about what Conseco says or does? He’s a perfect azzhole and the whole world knows it except him and the media. MEDIA get a lif

    Please do the entire world a favor Jose and go jump off a cliff. Youre a washup and an disgrace to baseball. It seems like everytime I turn my head, I hear Jose rambling like the idiotic dopehead that he is. Please just go away forever. One more word of advice to Jose, please dont act like a badass when you got your world wrecked by that Asian fella in the first round of your MMA debut.

    Jose should just kill himself , No one likes you

    A-Rod doesn’t have to get into any ring. He can wear one on his finger.

    Jose Canseco could’nt even beat Danny Bonaduce. It was a draw.

  8. Sheldon Baumann - Nov 7, 2009 at 8:01 PM

    I have just two words for Jose, “Go away!”

    canseco sucks at life anyway
    who cares what he wants

    I think that Canseco is seriously deranged.

    Hose-Ay, has a gay crush on Alex and wants to get as close to him as possible.
    Hose-Ay’s code-word for ‘The Ring’ is actual ‘The Bed’.

    Personally, I think the ideal opponent for Canseco would be Mickey Rourke. Failing that, Tonya Harding is rumored still to be available and there are probably a couple of boxing kangaroos left out there. But Jose had better work fast: right now his cachet is about the same as Dwayne Bobick’s and his novelty value is fading fast.

    People like Jose Canseco have absolutely no clue what it means to fight a professional boxer. I laugh when I hear a guy on the street say something stupid like “I think I can take Tyson” or whoever is the big fighter at the moment. A real boxer can take even Canseco’s best punch straight to the jaw and smile, then hit you with a cannonball that will knock you into next week, if not just plain kill you.
    Oh, and John, try “MARK MY WORDS! ONE WEEK IN 7!”, and then give it a rest, knowing you’ll finally be right ;)

    Jose…….WHO ?

  15. skip h - Nov 8, 2009 at 8:37 AM

    Jose better watch his words because A-Rod could probably kick his butt. Jose, remember when you “fought” Vai Sikahema? About 7″ shorter and 40 lbs lighter, he had you cowering in a corner shortly after the fight started. You’ve become a carney huckster. Pathetic.

    a-rod is an idiot heshould be in movies he’s so overrated uses steroids and makes more errors in one season then cal ripken made in 18 seasons

    HEY JOHN,
    Ever notice the “caps lock” tab on your computer? Try using it! Next, it is Canseco, not Conseco. I guess if you don’t know about the Caps Lock, spell check is out of the question huh? Lastly, as a Twins fan, I hate the Yankees, but after reading your constant predictions of the Phillies winning (“MARK MY WORDS!!!!), I found myself rooting for NY instead of Philly. Imagine how annoying you must be to make a Yankees hater root for them! I think you should do 2 things, first, get in the ring with Canseco, maybe that moron can knock some sense into you. Next change your tag line to “Eat my Words!!!!

  18. John - Nov 8, 2009 at 6:35 PM

    I HAVE NOTICED THE “CAPS LOCK” ON MY COMPUTER, AND I AM USING RIGHT NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T NOTICED!!! THANK YOU FOR POINTING OUT MY SPELLING ERROR ON THIS VERY IMPORTANT DOCUMENT. I WOULD HAVE HATED FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA TO FIND IT. SO – HERE IT IS: CANSECO IN SEVEN!!! MARK MY WORDS!!!
