Jose Canseco Predicts He’d Win MLB Home Run Derby If Given the Chance


Jose Canseco won’t be participating in Monday’s MLB Home Run Derby. It’s a good thing, because if he was, you wouldn’t even have to bother watching.

That’s because Canseco would be busy dominating the competition.

On Monday morning, Canseco boldly proclaimed on Twitter that he’d win the MLB Home Run Derby if he was given the chance.

To his credit, Canseco did smack 462 home runs in his career and was one of the game’s premier sluggers in his heyday (even if it came with a little artificial help). Something tells me — perhaps his independent league struggles — that 20 years later, however, he might find it hard to outslug some of today’s best.

But hey, at least he’s confident.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
