And speaking of problematic people to follow on Twitter, ex-A’s star Jose Canseco has unleashed some doozies since being accused of raping a woman after drugging her.

Known for bizarre tweets in the past–“there is a quality control issue with my manfume”–now Jose has tweeted the name of his accuser along with an invitation to her to take a polygraph.

“Susie once i pass both of the polygraphs and u refuse to take one what do u think people will say about u,” he tweeted to his accuser Thursday.

Canseco has not been charged, but officials confirmed with the San Jose Mercury News that they are investigating the woman’s claims.
