Oakland is visiting New York for a series against the New York Mets this weekend, and the occasion gave outfielder Yoenis Cespedes the opportunity to appreciate his former club and reminisce a little.
In regards to possibly one day going back to play for the Oakland A’s, Cespedes told the San Francisco Chronicle,
“I wish that happens. I told Blevins, ‘I don’t know how many years I’m going to play, but I’m going to play the last year of my career with Oakland.’ I don’t know if that’s possible or not, but that’s my goal.”
This tweet seems different, though (if only slightly different), mostly because there are ways that this challenge could pan out in the real world without too much effort.
Canseco clearly knows his own limits here. He gives himself a softball to hit rather than a baseball. While still difficult to hit very far, it does give him a little bit of an advantage.
The other reason this tweet is great is that Jose plainly presents his biggest weakness — his age — right in the tweet. He’s not trying to pull one over on anyone here. He fully thinks that despite a 30-year age difference he could come out on top.
He’s so confident in this unlikely outcome that it makes me want this to happen more than I otherwise would. Canseco is not joking here, and if Judge were down for it there’s a good chance this could be set up after the playoffs are over.
I agree, though, that the Stanton-Judge rivalry makes this even more Minnesota Vikings Cheap Jerseys exciting. I mean, if you can even call it a rivalry — it’s more that the world has decided these are our two NBA Basketball Jerseys Large Adult Sons and they’re going head-to-head.
