Jose Canseco has lost his baseball career and may be losing his grip on his reality as he compares himself to Jesus Christ in a Twitter rant.
Jose Canseco, former MLB all-star and steroid abuser, has compared himself to Jesus Christ to defend against his latest critics. Canseco is currently playing baseball in a Mexican League with the Tigres de Quintananaroo and has been tweeting about his time in the league, according to The Outside Corner.
After being heckled by baseball enthusiasts, calling Canseco "below-average," he made an absurd reference to Jesus Christ in an attempt to elevate himself above his "haters."
"Wow so sad that even Jesus Christ had haters and I'm proud to be part of his team," Canseco tweeted to a user who referenced who said he shouldn't be playing in the AAA League.
Canseco continued to reference Jesus Christ as he defended himself for ratting on fellow MLB players that used steroids in the 90s.
"Jesus Christ told the truth so that made him a snitch and that's why he was crucified?" Canseco tweeted.
According to The Outside Corner, Canseco feels he is being punished by Major League Baseball for revealing the "steroid era" of baseball and that's the only reason he isn't playing today. Outside Corner writer, Joe Lucia, questioned his comparison and logic of Jesus Christ being a snitch.
"What exactly did He snitch on? Christian belief says that Jesus spread faith...it's not as if He exposed some sort of vast conspiracy within the government," Lucia wrote.
Jose Canseco had a 16-year MLB career, playing for the Oakland Raiders, Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees. He was a six-time all-star, four-time Silver Slugger Award winner, American League Rookie of the Year and American League MVP.
However, Canseco will be most remembered for his steroid-use and for tattling on fellow steroid users in the MLB. In his book, "Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big," Canseco wrote that the majority of MLB players used steroids.
After retiring, he competed in boxing and mixed martial arts.
