Not quite satisfied with exposing Mark McGwire and alluding that McGwire and Sammy Sosa's famous homerun duel was a completely steroid fueled endeavor in his first tell all book "Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big", Jose Canseco is back yet again to spill a few more beans.
In his no holds barred, unapologetic, tell all new book "Vindicated: Big Names, Big Liars, and The Battle to Save Baseball", Jose now shines the light of guilt on ex Yankee player, Alex Rodriguez, who is also rumored to be having an affair with Canseco's latest wife. He also pulls player Magglio Ordonez into the mix.
Any that read the first book remember that Canseco claims that he introduced Mark McGwire to steroids in 1988 and that he often injected McGwire while they were teammates.
Truths here or bad blood? Many speculate that Canseco is just craving more limelight and attention now that his career is over, and that he also has axes to grind with some of his ex competitors in the game. Whichever it is, you must admit, this type of scandal is definitely eyebrow raising, not to mention the kind that forever sullies the images and reputations of some of baseballs biggest idols of late.
The dislike between Canseco and A-Rod is said to be quite heated, and has provided the tabloids and sports columns with plenty to write about lately. You can only wonder how many of these allegations are pointing to the truth. At this point in time, we have to ask ourselves, is ANY sport free from doping? Hey...what about those soccer players? Anybody dug up any dirt on them yet? The worst part is that kids these days aspiring to be their sport's next hero know that if hard work and training don't get the job done, there's always the needle. How sorry is that?
Myths and truths aside, however, these stories make for a pretty juicy read on your way to work!
Juiced or not, I think Jose is looking pretty tasty right here. Yeah, I admit it. I think he's kinda hot. Steroids and all. ;) Now don't even bother with the shrunken testicle jokes, okay? I mean, you haven't seen them, so you don't really know, do ya? lol
