Jose Canseco loves Lady Gaga and “would marry her in a second”

21 Comments

In the surest sign yet that he’s gone crazy, Jose Canseco took to Twitter yesterday and wrote that he’d marry Lady Gaga “in a second.”

Here’s more late-night tweeting from Canseco:

I love lady gaga wish I could meet her .would marry her in a second

Lady gaga is the truth get use to it

Her song Judas is what we fight with everyday since we are born evil

I am her night in baseball armor

She is the queen

Fantastic.

I actually think they’re perfect for each other, in the same sense that a car going 100 miles per hour and a brick wall are a perfect combination for an accident. Lady Gaga could not be reached for comment, as she was busy being hatched out of an egg.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Oakland Athletics owner John Fisher has reversed course and will continue to pay minor leaguers. Fisher tells Slusser, “I concluded I made a mistake.” He said he is also setting up an assistance fund for furloughed employees.

The A’s decided in late May to stop paying paying minor leaguers as of June 1, which was the earliest date on which any club could do so after an MLB-wide agreement to pay minor leaguers through May 31 expired. In the event, the A’s were the only team to stop paying the $400/week stipends to players before the end of June. Some teams, notable the Royals and Twins, promised to keep the payments up through August 31, which is when the minor league season would’ve ended. The Washington Nationals decided to lop off $100 of the stipends last week but, after a day’s worth of blowback from the media and fans, reversed course themselves.
