Though it appeared his days of shooting up were long gone–something left behind on the baseball diamond all those years ago–last night, Jose Canseco shot himself again. But this time, it wasn’t with a steroid-administering needle. No, this time, it was with a handgun.

From TMZ:

Former major league slugger Jose Canseco blew his middle finger clear off his hand while cleaning his handgun at home in Las Vegas.

Jose’s fiancée Leila Knight tells TMZ Sports … he was sitting at a table in their home cleaning the gun when it went off. She says he didn’t know it was loaded — and the shot ripped through the middle finger on his left hand.

Leila tells us 50-year-old Canseco is in surgery right now as doctors desperately try to save what’s left of the finger. She says the bullet tore through the bottom part of the finger and doctors have already said he’ll never have full use of it again … even under the best of circumstances.

Worst case … it may be amputated.

Upon hearing the news break late Tuesday night, I found myself in complete shock thinking about how Twitter will ever move on if one of the greatest ever is out of tweeting commission for the rest of his days.

His fiancée took over the account while Jose was rushed into surgery.


Thankfully, it was reported later on her behalf that Jose was seemingly okay.


However, “okay” in my book doesn’t necessarily mean his finger wasn’t amputated, so while my mind is racing and thinking about what this loss could possibly do to the Twittersphere, here are a few of Canseco’s best tweets off all time.


Let’s please keep Jose’s middle finger in our thoughts and prayers. He needs it to keep up his strong Twitter game, and it’s definitely useful to have on hand for telling someone to fuck off, too.
