He's taking his 400+ career homeruns to LA...
















Jose Canseco, that is.

Doesn't even sound like they really want him there...
Canseco tryout: The Dodgers haven't expressed any interest in signing Jose Canseco, but that won't stop Canseco from attending an open tryout here on March 1.

Sources said Canseco offered his services to the Dodgers but was rebuffed, and was instead told he could attend the tryout. If he attends, Canseco will get a look from Dodger scouts, but no special treatment. The last known player to be signed from one of these tryouts was catcher Rick Wilkins in 1999.

Canseco, 39, lives in Encino and hasn't appeared in the majors since he played 36 games with the Chicago White Sox in 2001. He has 462 home runs in parts of 17 seasons.

I don't see how anyone can give him a chance after all of the steroid issues. Although the Dodgers are pretty desperate for offense.

Do you think he'll be one of the first players to step up and take a steroids test to prove his innocence?

He will probably report to his tryout weighing 120 pounds. :)

There's no way he'll be able to play the field every day.

And the good news is that because of all of the steroid use, he probably doesn't even have a reason to wear a cup anymore. Now he'll be more mobile while patrolling right field and dishing out home runs off of the top of his hard head.

The Dodgers have said he is very unlikely to make the team, but if he wants to try out, they won't stop him.
