Cuban Immigrant Jose Canseco: The Typhoid Mary of Steroids
Print Friendly and PDF

Around 1993-94, a baseball player’s agent told me, “Jose Canseco is the Typhoid Mary of steroids.” He pointed to the extra homers and weird injuries Texas Rangers were having since Canseco arrived from Oakland in mid-1992 (in a trade approved by George W. Bush, by the way).

Funny how all those famous sabermetrician baseball stat geniuses didn’t publish anything about this pattern while it was actually happening in the 1990s … It’s almost like they’d rather not cause a stink and keep open their chances of getting good jobs in the baseball industry.
