We can't make this stuff up

Jose Canseco has asked to be traded. Oh, you didn't know he was playing baseball again? See the post below for more details, but Canseco has played one game this season Yesterday. Yes, that's right, one game for the San Diego Surf Dogs of the Golden Baseball League and now he has asked to be traded. Apparently his 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in his debut yesterday now warrants his making some demands on his new "team." His reasoning for wanting to be traded is as follows:

From the AP:

Golden Baseball League commissioner Kevin Outcalt said Wednesday that negotiations were expected to be completed soon to send Canseco from the independent San Diego Surf Dawgs to the Long Beach Armada.

Canseco asked for a trade because his daughter will be spending the rest of the summer living with him, and he will need to be in the Los Angeles area more than he anticipated, Outcalt said. Long Beach is about 25 miles south of Los Angeles.

It's almost like Jose found out I was starting a blog on the stranger side of sports and wanted to contribute to the effort.
