JOSE CANSECO TALKS ABOUT HIS BOOK, JUICEDOpening day of this season’s Major League Baseball last Sunday and Jose Canseco takes the stage at the Bovard Auditorium at the USC. The former batter wrote the controversial book, Juiced, where he revealed that a majority of MLB players are taking steroids. He himself admitted to using hormones that plummeted him to infamy, but not without taking several names down with him. He included the names Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Ivan Rodriguez, and Juan Gonzalez.

To his audience in Bovard, he says he continues to use testosterone. Except in 1998 when depression made him get off steroids for a while. He played for Toronto where he was able to hit 46 home runs. He could’ve quit then but the lure of steroids was just too difficult to resist.

The audience were curious about Alex Rodriguez if he was going to suffer the same fate as Canseco did. But the latter said that A-Rod was not very honest about using steroids. Sure, he admitted to using them but there is still something that he is not telling. When his name was leaked to the press as one of those who tested positive, it made the people curious to know who were the rest. Manny Ramirez most likely occupies the top of the list for steroids use, according to Canseco. He disclaims that all these were just suspicions but he is pretty sure his theory is correct.
