We here at XN have been obsessed with the supposedly-ongoing Jose Canseco missing finger saga. Now, we’re learning that some of the saga was just a bunch of hooey, which is surprising, given the high level of upstanding citizen the slugger has always shown himself to be…
We know for sure that Canseco blew his finger off while cleaning a gun and that it was later surgically reattached.
Turns out, the finger never fell off and that’s not a digit you just bid on on eBay.
We contacted Canseco about video he says he shot of the finger fail — and when push came to shove … he had to cop to the prank. Jose says he cooked up the plan when he came across the fake finger in a Halloween store.
