    Jose Canseco will talk to you on the phone if you are willing to pay him.

    Years ago a conversation with A's slugger Jose Canseco would have been something to brag about to your friends.

    Two decades and a steroid scandal later, Canseco is not the sought after personality he once was. But forever trying to stay in the headlines, Canseco has taken to Twitter to offer you a one-on-one conversation with him.

    The former baseball great tweeted out his phone number for anyone who wants to call him Wednesday. Of course with anything Canseco does there is a catch.

    Calling Canseco at 310-862-6309 will cost you. A part of the charge will go to line Canseco's wallet and a portion will go to charity.

    Based on his tweets, the response has been overwhelming.

    "Ok I am only one person please call tomorrow I can only handle so many calls," he tweeted just minutes after his original post.

    Still there are plenty of people who have a hard time believing anything Canseco says. And for them the slugger promises to get on Skype once they call and video chat with them.
