Earlier this evening ex-Athletic Jose Canseco tweeted the following:

So what exactly would this do for Jose Canseco’s career numbers? Well, let us have a look.
Thank to baseball-reference.com we see that Canseco’s wins/loss/tie splits comes out as follow:
By his own admission we can remove those 155 home runs he hit in losses. That takes him down to 307. Double that and you, of course get 614 home runs. Good enough for #32 on the all-time leader board, as Jason Wojciechowski shows. But what does that do for his overall numbers? Well, they would look like this:
