So, how was your Thursday night? It was probably a lot better than Jose Canseco's.
The new Worcester Tornadoes designated hitter made his Can-Am League debut on Thursday night against the Newark Bears.
Things started off promisingly for Canseco with a pair of walks, but at some point the Bears' pitchers deemed it best to go right at him, handing the slugger a pair of strikeouts. One of those strikeouts came on three consecutive pitches, the last of which was a curveball that totally froze Canseco. It was almost like he'd never seen a breaking ball, despite the fact he's seen a spinner or two in his day.
If you're looking for a positive, at least his on-base percentage is .500 through one game.
Canseco was also the target of some of the most unoriginal steroid chants and heckling of all time.
Hug for you, Jose. Here's hoping your Friday is better.
