Jose Canseco Kicked out of Mexican Baseball League For Taking Banned Substance
Unlike Ryan Braun, I don’t think Jose will be able to blame the courier for this one.
Anyone who follows Jose Canseco’s Twitter account (should only be followed for comic relief) should already know that Canseco was on some sort of drug.
I just figured it was bad weed.
Major-league headache Jose Canseco is back in the news. This time, the 47-year-old former slugger is trying to make a comeback in the Mexican League and has reportedly been busted for a banned substance. So he’s out of the league now. Yes, I’m shocked, too.
ESPN Deportes reported late Wednesday night that Canseco admitted to Mexican League president Plinio Escalante about using a banned substance that was testosterone. The Mexican League is a Triple-A affiliation to Major League Baseball, but none of the teams are connected to actual MLB clubs.
Of course, Canseco took to the Twitterverse to plead his innocence — or, really, it was more his “non-guilt.”
“How can I test positive when I never took any test don’t believe everything the media tells you.the truth always comes out I am not using any illegal substance,” he said.
Of course, the ESPN report noted that Canseco refused a drug test, so it didn’t claim he tested positive. It just said he admitted it to the president of the league. As far as I know, the president of the league isn’t in the media. But that didn’t mean the world’s least accountable person was done.
