Do you think other countries have their own Jose Cansecos? You know, guys who go from superstar athlete, to wife-beater, to best-selling author, to reality TV "star", to minor league sideshow? Yeah, I don't think so either. There's only one of him (apart, I mean, from his twin brother), and he's ours. I don't know about you, but I'm just -- sniff -- really proud.

So, it's been a busy week for our Jose -- first he hits four guys and walks five in his Long Beach Armada pitching debut (His analysis? "Overall, it felt pretty good."), and then he sells the movie rights to his bookJuiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits and How Baseball Got Big, and gets to add "movie producer" to his bizarro resume. While production company Nine Yards Entertainment has been smart enough not to let Canseco adapt his own book, they did hire Jose's pick Kipp Marcus to do the job, which suggests they're still letting the man stay way too involved in the process.

Even though I've been cringing the entire time I've been typing this, I almost hope Juiced: The Movie gets made -- I mean, how could it not be fun to watch some lug pretending to be Canseco, glorifying the all-powerful juice?
