Jose Canseco plays Mr. Irrelevant

high-life as a member of the newly-crowned World Series Champion
Yankees, a person from his past just refuses to go away.




During a weigh-in leading up to
a celebrity boxing match in Springfield, Mass. this week, Jose Canseco told a
reporter from Masslive.com
which baseball player he’d love to square off with in the ring:


“Secondly, who I would love to fight the most if I could pick a
baseball player? Alex Rodriguez, get your ass in the ring and I’ll beat
you to a pulp. Definitely that lying little idiot. I’d like to get him
in the ring.”



Canseco brings a whole new meaning to the term rope-a-dope.

Yesterday the New York Yankees got Aaron Judge back. Today they activated closer Aroldis Chapman.

Chapman has been on the disabled list since August 22 with left knee tendinitis. Before going down the 30-year-old fireballer registered a 2.11 ERA and 31 saves with an 84/27 K/BB ratio in 47 innings of work.

In his absence David Robertson, Dellin Betances and Zach Britton have all been bumped an inning back to decidedly mixed results. Now Chapman is back in the mix.
