Jose Canseco the Rat?

Postby trevisc » Wed Dec 29, 2004 2:33 pm

BATTING CHUMP It was originally scheduled to hit stores in time for spring training, but with the revelations about Barry Bonds and steroids, the publication of the juicy tell-all by former Bosox slugger Jose Canseco suddenly has been moved up to January. (Yes, there'll also be the requisite appearance on "60 Minutes" with Mike Wallace.) In "Juiced," the former Bash Brother, who's been out of baseball since 2001, reportedly IDs several big-name players who used illegal growth hormones. Luckily, no big names played for Boston, when Canseco was here in '95 and '96, so the Sox may not be smeared in the book. (OK, Mo Vaughn was on the team, but his body was definitely not the result of 'roids.)

The only way people like Conseco, who selectively “out” ‘roids users, get any mileage off of books like these is because the MLB is so secretive about the issue.

The fog of ‘roids is like gasoline on a fire.

what a joke - Canseco has always been the personification of the idiot jock to me. To use his name in a sentence with "write" and "book" in it, seems funny in itself.

Boo - Jose Canseco - Boooooo :-t

Canseco a "former Bosox slugger"? He only played two seasons in Beantown. His best seasons were in Oakland...

Well, to be fair to the writer, the portion quoted by trevisc only says that "no big names played for Boston, when Canseco was here in '95 and '96." I didn't click on the link, but they never claimed no Red Sox used steroids. Really it's a back-handed dig at Canseco, saying that he wasn't a big name player in '95 and '96.

Ugh, I can't believe I'm sticking up for a Boston sportswriter. I'm going to go wash my hands. :-P
