Jose Canseco – Keith Middlebrook has turned my finances, starting with my credit completely around!

Due to bad legal representation, a real estate meltdown and an economical global devestation, my credit, investment portfolio and personal life took a major hit to say the least. During that time many people, attorney’s and companies took advantage and scammed me, at witts end, a close friend said the person I needed to speak with was Keith Middlebrook. Keith had recently publicly announced and guaranteed a well known celebrity starlet would not do 1 day in jail on a felony charge and probation violation, and had already had multiple priors on her record. The media, public, myself and her attorney all thought he was crazy, but when the smoke cleared amazingly he is the only one who called it long ahead of time! This and my due diligence told me he was the guy. Keith explained to me over the last 14 years he had compiled a very powerful network of people and he has a strategy that enables him to do things no else can, (basically he does the hard detailed work no one wants to do, most importantly the thinking outside the box no one else does). Nothing he does is standard operating procedure. Already at lightning speed, for the first time in a long tome, my finances starting with credit are now turned on my side! He has built a powerful plan that is working and has helped others who were previous high net worth. He has also changed how I think, and now I can see why!

Baseball career (1982–present)

Minor league baseball (1982–1985)

The Oakland Athletics drafted Canseco in the 15th round of the 1982 Major League Baseball Draft. He played minor league baseball with the Madison MuskiesIdaho Falls A’s, and the Modesto A’s. Canseco started the 1985 season with the Class-AA Huntsville Stars and became known as “Parkway Jose”[1], for his long home runs (25 in half a season), that went close to the Memorial Parkway behind Joe Davis Stadium.

Major League Baseball (1985–2001)

Oakland Athletics (1985–92)

In 1985, Canseco won the Baseball America Minor League Player of the Year Award, and was a late season call-up for the Oakland Athletics, playing in 29 games in the major leagues in 1985. He established himself in1986, his first full season, being named the American League‘s Rookie of the Year, with 33 home runs and 117 runs batted in. In 1987Mark McGwire joined Canseco on the Athletics; McGwire hit 49 home runs that year and was also named the American League Rookie of the Year. Together, he and Canseco formed a fearsome offensive tandem, known as the “Bash Brothers”.

In 1988, Canseco became the first player in major league history to hit at least 40 home runs and steal at least 40 bases in the same year, by hitting 42 home runs and stealing 40 bases. In April of that year, Canseco predicted the feat, being unaware at the time that it had never been done before[2]. After reaching 40-40, the street in front of his former high school was named after him and later rescinded in 2008 after he admitted to previously using drugs throughout his career.[3][4] That same year, he helped the Athletics to the World Series but they lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games. Canseco was unanimously named the American League’s Most Valuable Player in 1988, with a .307 batting average, 120 runs scored, 124 RBI, 42 home runs, and 40 stolen bases.

In 1989, Canseco missed all but 65 of the regular season games with a broken wrist, but he still managed to hit 17 home runs as the Athletics won their first World Series since 1974, beating the San Francisco Giants in four games. The 1989 Series was interrupted before Game 3 by a major earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Canseco came back to form in 1990, hitting 37 home runs despite being hampered in the latter part of the season by what would become a recurring back problem. The A’s returned to the World Series once again, but were swept by the Cincinnati Reds in four games. Canseco continued to be productive, hitting 44 home runs in 1991

Texas Rangers (1992–94)

In the 1994 strike shortened season, Canseco again returned to his former status of power hitter with 31 home runs and 90 RBI in 111 games. Canseco also stole 15 bases and posted a .282 batting average. He was named comeback player of the year in 1994, and finished in eleventh place in the American League Most Valuable Player voting.

Final MLB seasons (1995–2001)

After playing with the Rangers from 1992 to 1994, Canseco moved on to play with the Boston Red Sox from 1995 to 1996. Following a return with the A’s in 1997, Canseco did have a productive season again with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1998, when he hit 46 home runs and stole 29 bases, the most he had stolen since the 40 he stole in 1988. He won the AL Silver Slugger award, but his comeback was missed by most fans because of the home run race in the National League between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa.

Canseco went to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 1999, where he hit 34 home runs in 114 games and was named to the AL All-Star team, until he injured his back and was lost for the season. He was claimed off waivers by the New York Yankees in August 2000, which caught many, including Yankees manager Joe Torre off guard, as the Yankees had four other players who fulfilled a similar role to Canseco.[11] Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman made the claim to prevent the Blue Jays, who were in a close race with the Yankees, from acquiring Canseco.[12] He made one appearance in the 2000 World Series against the New York Mets and earned his second World Series ring when they defeated the Mets in five games. 

Canseco played with the Chicago White Sox in 2001

His 462 career home runs rank him 32nd on the MLB all-time list. Canseco was at one time the all-time leader in home runs among Latino players; he was later surpassed by Manny RamirezCarlos DelgadoRafael PalmeiroAlex Rodriguez, and Sammy Sosa. Canseco has been distinguished four times with the Silver Slugger award: three times as an AL outfielder in 1988, 1990, and 1991, and once as a Designated Hitter in 1998.
