Jose Canseco: Telling Red Sox Fans What They Want To Hear

Jose Canseco knows just the right buttons to push in just the right places. His recent comments on a Boston radio station are a prime example. By now, everyone has heard what he told WEEI: that he had "other stuff" on A-Rod. When prompted for details, he said "wait and see."

Canseco is just plain jealous of A-Rod. However, the fact that Canseco made these comments on WEEI is significant, for three reasons: 1) He knows about the Sox-Yankees rivalry; 2) He knows Red Sox fans still have not gotten over the fact that their team missed out on acquiring A-Rod; and 3) He knows the listening audience is comprised mainly of Red Sox fans.

If A-Rod were on any other team, Canseco would not have made those comments to WEEI. My guess is that Canseco has absolutely nothing on Alex Rodriguez. He's probably not even writing a book. Although, now that he's created such a stir, some publisher probably will offer him a book deal. *sigh*
