Jose Canseco Offers His Services to Los Angeles Dodgers, Magic Johnson

| by Alex Groberman

Professional attention-seeker, performance-enhancing drug (PED) connoisseur and one-time baseball player Jose Canseco is back in the news.

What did he do this time? Well, on the heels of it going public that Magic Johnson’s group had purchased the Los Angeles Dodgers for a whopping $2 billion, Canseco decided to give Johnson and Co. a money-saving offer. He offered to play either first base or be a pinch hitter off the bench for free.

Yup, free.

Talk about an offer that's tough to turn down.

No word yet on whether Johnson wants to sign the guy who was embroiled in a doping scandal as recently as three weeks ago, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
