LAREDO, Texas, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- Disgraced former major league ballplayer Jose Canseco has taken to Twitter to chronicle his downfall and rail against perceived injustices, observers say.

Canseco, once known for his power hitting and comical fielding, has been spiraling down the celebrity scale since his career ended after the 2001 season, The Toronto Star reported Monday.

Once he'd mined his steroid use for all the financial gain he could, he took up prize fighting -- without success. Shortly after being evicted from his home in mid-August Canseco signed with the United League Baseball Laredo Broncos in Texas.

The ULB has no affiliation with Major League Baseball.

A month ago, Canseco said he was living in someone's garage, and even pitched it as a reality-show idea. ("Someone should do a show called the penthouse to the garage," he tweeted.)

His recent Twitter posts suggest he's hit rock bottom, the newspaper said.

"I need an attorney pro bono my lanlord (sic) evicted me and would not let me take my chandeleers (sic) with me, need your help to get them back," Canseco said Thursday in a Twitter post.

"I am sick and tired of our system allowing liars and hypocrits (sic) to thrive and succeed when honest good people suffer," he recently posted.
