Former MLB slugger Jose Canseco has been signed by the independent league Worcester Tornadoes to a one-year contract, the team announced.

The 47-year-old Canseco was in the news when he allegedly refused to take a doping test before playing in the Mexican League.

“I am very much looking forward to putting on a uniform and competing on a professional level again this year,” Canseco said in a Tornadoes statement. “I love the game of baseball. I am particularly grateful to the Worcester Tornadoes for embracing me and having the confidence in me to help the team win.”

David Ortiz says he never made use of steroidsBoston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has officially denied making use of steroids.

This announcement by Ortiz came nine months after he acknowledged that his name appeared on the list of players in 2003 who have been tested positive for performance enhancing drugs.

The test results were supposed to be confidential but were instead subpoenaed by federal investigators looking into the Bay Area Laboratory Company (BALCO) scandal.

Roger Clemens indicted in baseball steroid caseThe former New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox baseball pitcher, Roger Clemens, has been indicted for allegedly lying to the US Congress. This was after it was found that Clemens lied while testifying before a congressional committee that he had never taken steroids or human growth hormone.

The name of Clemens was mentioned 82 times in a report by former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell that detailed the sport’s problem with steroids in 2007.

The statement of Clemens in the past is a “self-inflicted wound”, as per former Rep. Tom Davis, the top Republican on the House of Representatives panel at the time of Clemens’ testimony.

Red Fox Staffers linked with steroids firedTwo security staff members of the Boston Red Sox were fired last year after they were caught involved in steroid use during an investigation by Major Baseball League.

This incident was reported by The Boston Globe. There was no evidence that the staff members had sold performance enhancing drugs to players or were aware of any direct knowledge about players using such drugs.

Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, said in an interview with CNN that he was “sick” about the use of steroids in sports.

barry-bonds-steroidsIt seems because of the steroid allegations, Barry Bonds can’t find a job as a baseball player in the MLB anymore. He’s been rejected by 3 baseball clubs: Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Mets, and Boston Red Sox. It seems the steroid allegations that ruined Barry Bonds career are going to follow him for the rest of his life. Anabolic Steroid use is the main reason Bonds can’t get a job. However, it is interesting how MANY MLB Baseball players have tested positive for banned recreational drugs like cocaine, got a suspension, but were able to come back and play baseball. In fact, many have been moved to different teams for decades even after numerous drug usage accusations. Why is Barry Bonds the one singled out for something as simple as steroid use? that’s because of the negative media campaigns against the man.

Barry Bonds hasn’t received a single offer to return to the diamond, according to his agent.

“I’m an optimistic guy by nature and I have told Barry that the prospects look bleak,” said Jeff Borris, who represents baseball’s home run king.

Bonds, who turns 44 on July 24, has sat idle since filing for free agency last Oct. 30.

But recent reports suggested the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets expressed an interest in the slugger, and that he worked out with the Boston Red Sox.

“The rumours about Arizona, the Mets and Boston are completely false,” Borris said. “He never had a secret workout with the Red Sox.

“I have had numerous conversations with all three organizations, back to the time when Barry became a free agent in November of 2007, and none of those clubs are interested in him. Barry would play for any one of those clubs if they extended an offer.
