    More Canseco!!!!!

    Canseco plans to sue MLB, players' association - MLB - SI.com


    When we thought we couldn't have more drama with Major League Baseball and the "Steroid Era", the almighty Jose Canseco decides he is going to sue the MLB and Players Association for lost wages and defamation of character!!!!!

    Looks like another ploy to be on the front page of papers and ESPN since his MMA fighting is going south!!!

    The guy doesn't look like such an idiot anymore though when every single player he named in his book was linked to roids

    Re: More Canseco!!!!!

    He certainly seems to know the steroid landscape. At least one guy in this whole fiasco doesn't portray himself as a saint when he isn't. Who would've thought that guy would be Canseco?

    Re: More Canseco!!!!!

    I give props to Giambi and I hate the Yankees. "Hey, I used steroids, it was wrong... a lot of people were doing it... I got caught."

    That's good enough for me.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: More Canseco!!!!!

    I wouldn't want my name coming up in one of his books, interviews, or whatever. That's just the touch of death anymore.

    I don't think he's an idiot. What you have to remember though, is that he wrote the book to 1) Make money and 2)Promote the steroid use in baseball.

    Have you read the book? He endorses the use of steroids and cites his own career as an example of how steroids can be positive

    Because of this, I am unwilling to call him some savior or hero.

    Good point. Everybody who called him a hero or savior take it back... oh wait...

    Re: More Canseco!!!!!

    I think any player who took the steroid test in 2003 that was supposed to be secret, has a case against the Player's Association.

    Exactly. It was a confidential test to see the situation of the league, and then someone who wants some money from SI leaks the names.

    Actually it was anonymous, which means there were supposed to be no names attached to the test... There's a difference between anonymous and confidential.... Nevertheless, I'd be ****** if I was in the MLBPA...
