    Mabe they can create a new play where he pinch runs on 3rd, and steals home by jumping over the catchers head…

    can he still jump over cars? if so, good move

    this move will only be justified if i can see him jump over the pitcher on the way to first again

    If he comes back with a 40 – 40 season, then Canseco will have done his job.

    It’s deja vu all over again… The last time the Sox picked him up it was to be a pinch runner in September.

    The modern day version of old time Oakland A’s player Matt Alexander.. Designated pinch runner.. If a team could afford in this modern time to have a pinch runner, this would maybe be the guy.

      I had forgotten about him!!

      Those running A’s way back then were sure something… They even had base path SLUGS like Sal Bando getting like 20SB’s one year.

    40 walks and 24 strikours, I can only imagine the pitching quality.

    Probabley will put up the same kind of numbers as Crawford but a little bit cheaper.
