Have u seen Marcus Giles this year? He used to look like a bodybuilder now he looks like a normal person. Less HRs?

i was reading on espn.com about some of the "stories" canseco tells about other "users." The bit about talking to Boone on second base after a double is a lie, he lied about a game 6 in the WS, you know ill just send the link for anyone interested.

btw i dont doubt that some of the players he mentions may have been juiced, but his facts are wrong and to me have no credibility.

I think he is pretty much telling the truth, but I bet he is over exaggerating on the number of:
People he knew were on roids
Girls he slept with

And that he is under exaggerating the:

Number of drugs he took
His scores on the SATs
:-]

Here's a part of Canseco's book, about Bret Boone in Spring Training of 2001:

"I hit a double, and when I got out there to second base, I got a good look at Boone," Canseco wrote. "I couldn't believe my eyes. He was enormous."

'"Oh, my God,' I said to him. 'What have you been doing?'"

'"Shhh,' he said. 'Don't tell anybody.'"


But the thing is, Canseco never got a double in Spring Training. He never even got a hit. And he certainly never reached second base, which many news sources have noted.

At least most people know enough not to believe this guy, even though I'm sure some of what he says has truth to it. The problem is, you don't know what's true, what's speculation, and what's completely made up to sell books.

Shhhhh ... I am hoping that people will overpay for him this season. :-X

I think his power numbers will suffer BIG TIME.

I never heard about that. That could change some opinions.

Marcus Giles never looked like a body builder, so I don't know where you're getting that from.

Canseco's an Idiot, he's probably the last person that I would believe in the world.
