Jose Canseco's Yuma Scorpions Set to Debut

Ladies and gentlemen...your new favorite baseball team starts their season today.

That's right.  After making headlines last month by bringing Jose and Ozzie Canseco on board, the Yuma Scorpions are ready to get their season underway against the Calgary Vipers.

And in true Jose Canseco fashion...the Scorpions' player/manager took time out from going goo goo for Lady Gaga and made a bold prediction Monday night via Twitter:

Opening night for my Yuma Scorpions tomorrow...I'm going long

But the former American League MVP wasn't the only Scorpion making predictions, team general manager Jose Melendez has been making some of his own.

"We're going to bring Hollywood to Yuma," Melendez told the Yuma Sun.  "That's what we want to do, that's our goal this year. That's our motto: Bring Hollywood to Yuma."

Whether or not Hollywood ends up in Yuma remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain...the three-ring circus (with the Brothers Canseco occupying two of them) is in town and it will get plenty of attention.
