Jose Canseco bashes A-Rod

Jose Canseco is all a-Twitter about Alex Rodriguez.

"I could easily hit a softball further than Alex Rodriguez can [hit] a baseball any day," the former big leaguer wrote on Twitter.

"I am challenging alex rodriguez to a home run competition all the monies will go to charity ... Alex Rodriguez if you are listening to not back away from this challenge ... I will understand if you back away from this challenge because you are use to backing away from the truth and not commenting on it."

In 2008, Canseco was first to say that A-Rod had used steroids; A-Rod admitted it in 2009.

"[Rodriguez] is exactly what major league baseball stands for he admitted using steroids and got a 300,000,000 dollar contract," Canseco said.  "I have no money no friends and hated by millions just because I always tell the truth what does that tell you about our society," Canseco wrote. "I would definitely suck as a politician."
