Fort Worth Cats
Jose Canseco has been busy since his two-year stint with the Rangers almost two decades ago. He became an author. He danced with the stars. He admitted using steroids and accused a laundry list of former teammates of doing the same. He tried to become mayor of Toronto which, in retrospect, wasn't such a bad idea.

But baseball has always been close to Canseco's heart, which is why, at the age of 48, he is returning to the game. He'll join the roster of the Fort Worth Cats for the minor league club's season-opening series against the Edinburgh (Texas) Roadrunners. That team is managed by Ozzie Canseco, Jose's twin brother, which he's excited about.

He's also excited to "come to Fort Worth and mentor the young ballplayers," as he told the Cats' website. With luck, one of the players may someday have a career as distinguished as his has been.

The Cats, meanwhile, can finally put to bed all those concerns about unpaid bills and the team's financial health. With Jose Canseco on board, what could possibly go wrong?

Every time I see another Cats headline, it's worse than the last one.  That team has become a joke.  Will there be a big top put up and maybe some clowns running around?

Burgers Lake, Angelo's Barbeque, and then a Cats game; Not a bad way to spend a summer day in Cowtown.

When he was with the A's way back when, my brother and I would yell "steroids" and "madonna" non stop for 9 innings; oh how I miss that old Arlington Stadium!  The only time our drunken chants were halted was to consume more Budweiser, and yell "faaattttsooo" at Don Zimmer when he went out to the mound.  That was a simpler time.

@ScottsMerkin It would be the ONLY promotion I think they would have.  Bare schedule from what I see.
