It doesn't help that Twitter users trolled Canseco about losing his elite status on Twitter by bringing up his past steroid use and his reputation as a cheater.

Canseco has become most famous after the end of his baseball career by writing about the widespread use of steroids in the MLB. Canseco, an admitted steroid user, claimed up to 85 percent of baseball players used steroids and accused players such as Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Jason Giambi and Alex Rodriguez of using performance-enhancing drugs.
