Jose Canseco is 4-for-20 with one RBI, two walks and seven strikeouts through five games with the Worcester Tornadoes of the Can-Am League, an independent baseball league similar to the Atlantic League that the Long Island Ducks play in.

But he's drawing fans to their stadium, which at this level, is really what matters. After a Tuesday night rainout, Canseco spoke with the Worcester News Tonight sports crew about his hitting so far. His take is interesting (Canseco kicks in around the 40-second mark of the video embedded below).
