Jose Canseco Lobbying for Rockies Job

Perhaps wanting to follow in the footsteps of his fellow "Bash Brother" Mark McGwire, Jose Canseco is lobbying for another shot at employment within Major League Baseball.

This time, like McGwire, as a hitting coach.

There's no word on how a future gig as the Rox hitting coach would interfere with Canseco's career as a film star, podcaster, amateur boxer or whatever the beleaguered, ex-slugger comes up with next.

Suffice it to say, Canseco has yet to follow up with any tweets hinting at whether or not his former Oakland A's teammate (and current Colorado Rockies manager) Walt Weiss has corresponded…but my guess is that he hasn't. 

Call it a hunch.
