2001 Fleer Platinum #386 - Jose Canseco

On this day in 2001, Jose Canseco was granted Free Agancy by the Chicago White Sox.

When Harold Baines didn't work out in the 2001 season, the Sox turned to another veteran in Jose Canseco. In seventy-six games, Jose hit .258 with sixteen homers and forty-nine RBI. He struck out, on average, about once a game. Far removed from his glory days. Canseco still had some life left in him, but it was only good enough for a third place finish, behind the Indians and Twins.
