Everyone’s been talking about the World Series juiced balls. And that extends to former MLB star Jose Canseco, who knows a thing or two about juicing.
The 2017 World Series has been setting records for home runs. Pitchers from both the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros believe the balls are juiced, and they’ve been talking about how much slicker the balls are this World Series compared to the rest of the year.
Sunday night’s Game 5 in Houston saw seven balls fly out of the field of play in the 13-12 win for the Astros
Anyway, as the game was going on, super late (there’s a Dr. note for you if you need it), Canseco chimed in on the whole World Series juiced balls debate.
The balls in my pants have less juice in them then the balls in this game

We’ll let you sort out exactly how much juice that amounts to. But at this point it’s clear, there’s something different about the balls being pitched to the batters in the 2017 World Series.
And we like it.
