Jose Canseco Tries To Prove Steroids Don't Make The Player By Throwing His Twin Brother Under The BusPosted by Matt Clapp | 12/17/2010 02:48:00 PM | Boston Red Sox, Jose Canseco, MLB, Oakland Athletics, Ozzie Canseco, Steroids, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Twitter
Yep, Jose Canseco Twitter time again.
Today Canseco's going on about how steroids don't make an athlete great, but rather talent does. And he's certainly right; I've spent much time arguing this myself in the past.
Steroids obviously can help greatly for a sport like baseball as we've seen much over the last 20 years, but just because you're ridiculously strong, doesn't mean you can have the hand-eye coordination to hit a 100 mph fastball, the patience to lay off a pitch just out of the strike zone, or the ability to hit nasty a dirty breaking ball. That's why Barry Bonds was an amazing player, regardless of his use of performance-enhancing substances.
Now, getting that out of the way, the way Canseco went about getting his point across was a bit of a dick move, and the only reason I'm making this post. Here's what he had to say:
Jose Canseco translation: My twin brother sucks; I'm awesome.
You stay classy, Jose.
