Jose Canseco I've Been Molested By Women ... Never Complained

12/12/2017 3:49 PM PST
Breaking News

Jose Canseco says the women accusing politicians of sexual misconduct are only complaining because the alleged offenders are "ugly men" ... and now the Oakland A's are distancing themselves from the ex-MLB star. 

Canseco began ranting on Twitter on Tuesday ... saying, "What is going on with all these politicians molesting women I've been molested by several women and never complained."

He continued, "Well I mean I've been beaten by women taken advantage of by women and molested by women I never complain but it was kind of a turn-on."

"I see the difference I guess cuz I was a good-looking guy and these politicians look like a bag of boogers."

But, it was the next line that REALLY pissed some people off ... 

"These women complaining against sexual misconduct are just racist against ugly men."

The comments got back to Jose's former team -- the Oakland A's -- and the organization wasted no time condemning the comments and making it clear they have no relationship with the ex-slugger. 

"We were disappointed to learn of Mr. Canseco's statements," the team said. 

"Mr. Canseco is not an employee of the Athletics and his statements do not reflect the values of our organization or those of our most trusted partners."

EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Fallon's so stoked on Giancarlo Stanton joining the Yankees, dude went straight PRIMAL when we asked him about the blockbuster trade.

"OOOOOOOOOH ... what a season we're gonna have, oh my goodness!" Jimmy grunted/said to TMZ Sports in the Big Apple.

Fallon's New York born and bred ... so he couldn't even try to play it cool talking about Stanton -- and new manager, Aaron Boone -- putting on the pinstripes.

The real question -- how are Jimmy and Giancarlo gonna top Aaron Judge's appearance on "The Tonight Show?"

Breaking News

Giancarlo Stanton wasn't in a hurry to leave Miami after he was traded to the Yankees -- he stuck around an extra day to rage in Miami with 2 Chainz

The big trade news was announced late Friday night -- but less than 24 hours later, Stanton was at Rockwell x 1OAK Art Basel pop up event in Miami on Saturday ... where he got onstage and partied with the rapper. 

Also, CHECK OUT THAT PINKY RING -- LEGENDARY!!!!!

2 Chainz also hooked Stanton up with a magnum sized bottle of Ace of Spades bubbly.

The ex-Marlins superstar is set to be introduced as the new face of the Yankees Monday ... so, this could have been his unofficial "goodbye" to the city he ran for half a decade.

It's almost kinda sad -- until you remember his $325 MILLION contract.

Boston Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright was arrested this weekend after he got into an altercation with his spouse, according to local media outlets.

NBC Sports Boston reports that the starting righty got busted Friday at his home in Tennessee for an incident involving his wife, which resulted in him being arrested and booked for domestic assault.

His lawyer released a statement from the Wright family saying ... "On Friday night, Steven was arrested at our home following a verbal argument, and the police charged him with domestic assault."

The statement goes on ... "Although he said things he deeply regrets, he did not raise his hand at anyone during the incident, and the situation was purely emotional. We are working together as a family ... and we ask that you respect our privacy as we do so."

The Red Sox also released a statement saying they were aware of the situation, and that MLB and police were investigating ... declining to comment further.

Wright and his agent declined to comment to NBC. He was reportedly released from jail.

Sammy Sosa I'm Dreaming of a Pasty White Xmas!

12/7/2017 6:04 AM PST
Breaking News

Here's former baseball star Sammy Sosa keepin' things light at a huge festival in Miami Beach.

Sosa hit up DuJour's Miami Beach's Art Basel Kick-Off at The Confidante where he posed for pics on his way into the event ... weeks after T.I. blasted him for his alleged skin bleaching. 

Sammy's complexion has very obviously changed over the years. We can only find one interview where he addressed it -- from 2009 -- saying the lightening was an unexpected result of a skin softening cream.

T.I. called B.S. and said it was more about "self-hate" -- but, judging by the way Sammy was smiling and laughing on the red carpet, he really doesn't seem to care what anyone else thinks.

Here's Andy Cohen schooling MLB on how to pitch soon-to-be-traded Giancarlo Stanton on playing for your baseball team ... layin' it all on the line for the superstar slugger.

FYI, it looks like the Stanton sweepstakes is down to the Giants, Dodgers and Cardinals -- so, when TMZ Sports got Cohen -- an STL superfan -- out in NYC ... he made sure Giancarlo knew all he'd be getting.

"We will love on you like NEVER BEFORE. We are your team! We are waiting for you!" Andy shouted.

The reality TV host checked all the boxes ... guaran-damn-teeing a hardcore fan base, a boatload of cash and even a championship ring!! And the cherry on top ...

"I have my Instagram -- I'm waiting to follow you, dude!"

Advantage, Cards? Maybe, maybe not ...

Justin Verlander Pick Between Kate Upton and World Series? ... Hell No!

12/6/2017 6:21 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It's Take 2 on one of the best sports questions ever ... 

Which is better -- winning the World Series or honeymooning with Kate Upton??

We got to ask the one guy who would know the answer -- Justin Verlander -- as the Houston Astros pitcher was leaving Craig's Tuesday night with his supermodel bride. 

Verlander successfully dodged the question when it was posed on Twitter a few days ago -- even after Kate doubled down and asked Verlander to give an answer!!

So, what happened this time around? Well, let's just say he'd rather talk about Jose Altuve ...

Christmas is less than 20 days away ... but MLB legend Doc Gooden is already getting in the holiday spirit, thanks to Santa's Helpers -- a merry band of NYC strippers!!

Doc hit up Vivid Cabaret in NYC on Tuesday night dressed up as Santa Claus himself -- and tried to keep his composure as the staffers grinded on his south pole. 

We tried to ask Doc if he had any advice for Josh Gordon -- who's also battled substance abuse. Watch as Gooden tries to give a respectful answer with a handful of stripper ass ... it's actually impressive!

Ho! Ho! Ho!

EXCLUSIVE

Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel has proof that a good time can cost you ... he tells TMZ Sports that the walking boot on his foot is a result of the raucous Astros victory parade.

We got DK leaving Catch LA and asked him what's with the new footwear, since we weren't aware of any injuries he got during the World Series.

That's when Keuchel told us ... he actually hurt his paw after he slipped during the festivities celebrating the Astros first ever MLB championship.

We'd say good luck to the Astros in repeating, but we wouldn't want the guy to tear an ACL.

The Yanks have been interviewing managerial candidates since they let Joe Girardi go last month. A-Rod -- who's been linked to the gig -- has publicly said he ain't really interested in the job.

But looks like things done changed ... 'cause J Lo just fired the ex-Bombers' hat into the ring ... saying, "It couldn’t be clearer...#arodforyankeesmanager" ... along with a link to an article titled, "The Best and Only Choice for Yankess Manager is obvious..." on Instagram.

Your move, Mr. Steinbrenner ... and don't make J Lo mad.

TMZ SPORTS DISCLAIMER: Curt Schilling is in no way dissing any of the baseball players mentioned in this post, this is simply his opinion on who will, and WILL NOT make the MLB Hall of Fame.

That said, some of y'all gonna be mad.

We gave Curt (who should already be in) a list of the some of the guys who made the ballot for the 2018 class, and he broke it down -- who's gonna be in, and who's gonna be out.

It's a dope class, with guys like Andruw Jones, Chipper Jones, Johnny Damon, Johan Santanaand Jim Thome up for consideration.

Schilling answers honestly about each guy, being careful and making sure not to hurt anyone's feelings in the process ... yeah, right.

Bonus Curt? He also weighs in on Joe Morgan's steroid-player-hating letter from earlier in the week, and tells us if he ever thinks guys who juiced up should get in.
