It's hard not to feel bad for Jose Canseco. After being one of the most dominant power hitters and stolen base threats in the '80s and '90s, he has now become little more than baseball's rodeo clown. With his quirky attitude and outspokenness, the guy is always good for a laugh!
What's even funnier is that Canseco practically sets himself up for ridicule via his Twitter account, @josecanseco. If you're having a dreary day and need a pick-me-up, look no further than this piece of cyber gold.
In fact, here are 25 reasons as to why we all love Canseco's Twitter.

First off, I didn't even know that Canseco cared about politics, let alone attending the White House Correspondents Dinner.
Next, how ballsy does someone have to be to actually tweet the First Lady and ask for a hookup simply because he played for her favorite team for one year in the twilight of his career?
I have no idea how to respond to this one.
Then again, only Jose Canseco would be obsessed with a portly power hitter playing in Japan.
I have no clue what "kimionwheels" is, but the fact that Canseco is willing to slap those who don't vote for them...I don't know if it's scary or just downright hilarious.
OK, a couple of questions here.
Why was Canseco in jail, and how was he able to tweet from there??
I don't know who Canseco is saying this to, but it's hard not to laugh simply because it's him saying it.
Where does he come up with this one here? No, honestly! I need to know how the dude's mind works!
No, Jose. You are not the only "real" entertainer on Twitter.
If you're looking for a real one, might I suggest Jim Gaffigan?
Canseco currently has 466,060 followers, a number that surely grows daily. When he reaches the 500k plateau, he might have some explaining to do!
Just who is this hater and why does he deserve to be slapped?
"Who says I don't have a heart."
Hmmm...I don't know, Jose. Maybe the fact that you'll go anywhere if it means an appearance fee?
Actually, Jose, my life was fine without you.
Then, it got a lot better once you joined Twitter!
You know what? I'd watch that. How bad could it be?
Um...yeah. I've got nothing.
And here's an image that I'll never be able to get out of my head, thanks to this 'roid boy.
Release me from what? Your "deadly" clutches?
Really, Jose? You tweet so much already that we all had no idea!
If this is true, maybe it's time to have Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Jeff Foxworthy all testify before Congress on the subject.
Wow. I guess Jose just likes Bobby V!
Now here's the real question: does he really want to help the Red Sox or just be in the same room with Bobby V?
Does that include the honey badger, Jose?
I don't know, Jose. Try it and see what happens! It's only Twitter, you know.
Move over, Phil Jackson. The world of sports has a new Zen Master!
Back in the day, hitters named their bats Black Betsy. Today, we have Jose Canseco and Foul Ball Paul.
Ohhhh so THAT'S why Canseco disappeared from Twitter for a day!
