he would be “going long”.
A little more than a month later…he finally did.
Wednesday night, against the Calgary Vipers…Canseco finally made good on his Opening Day prediction.
Against someone called Mark Michael.
It was just a matter of time, really, dude victimized 280 different pitchers over the span of his 17-year big league…but I didn’t think it would take him nearly 80 plate appearances (and 20 games) to do so.
Through 31 games, Canseco’s Scorpions are 10-21. The 1988 American League MVP is batting .250 (15 for 60), with that one homer and nine RBI.
