"What people need to understand is that twitter is a form of entertainment. There's nothing serious about  it at all. I like to say things and see how people respond," Canseco told GoLocalWorcester in early June.

A Conspiracy

Canseco began an online campaign to make the Major League All Star game, posting reminders every week for his fans to vote for him. The only problem? Canseco has not played in the Majors since 2001. So, obviously, he was not on the ballot.

No problem, Canseco said. Simply write him in and let him make the trip to Kansas City for the midsummer classic. Surprisingly, he did not get enough votes.

Or, it is an MLB conspiracy. Either one.

One day they'll see

Oh, the truly great ones are never appreciated in their time. Here, Canseco draws parallels between himself and former greats that were discriminated against because of their race. 

Draw from that what you will.

Still, Canseco is right about one thing, he did put up some all-time great numbers, with 462 home runs, 1,407 RBI and six All-Star selections.
