No steroid talks for Rodriguez climbing on home run chartAlex Rodriguez is about to hit the 600-home run mark any time from now but baseball fans are still not sure if ESPN will flash a graphic of the all time home run leaders.

Some fans and baseball players have already stopped counting Rodriguez’s home runs after 553 when he admitted to use of steroids.

Rodriguez loyalists just hope that he breaks the all-time record of 762 home runs by Barry Bonds, which seems to be impossible in today’s times.

Jose Canseco could be the wild card in perjury investigationsBrian McNamee, the former trainer of Roger Clemens, said that a June 1998 barbeque at Jose Canseco’s house was one of the most pivotal moments in baseball career of Clemens as this was the time and place when he plunged deeper into use of steroids.

However, Canseco has been saying for two years that Clemens didn’t attended the shindig at his home in South Florida, which cast doubt on Clemens’s credibility and raising questions about the Mitchell Report on baseball and steroids.

It is worth noting here that Jose Canseco has never been sued for the allegations in this book and its follow-up version, “Vindicated“.

  JOSE CANSECO TALKS ABOUT HIS BOOK, JUICED

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.

  Jose Canseco on Steroids and Foreclosure

Jose Canseco steroidsIf it was publicity Jose Canseco sought, he got it this time – big time. Some call it bad math, some call it bad judgment, and some call it bad marriages. He has a couple of divorces that has drained him off of around 7 to 8 million dollars. Whatever the reason, the 7,300-square foot house in suburban Encino is no longer Jose Canseco’s.

Canseco explains: “You know my life, this financial thing, is a very complicated issue. Obviously, when you make all that money, people think, `OK, let’s assume it is $35 million.’ People have to understand that $35 million, you’re paying the government 41 percent. That leaves you with about $17 or $18 million, not even. Then you’re taking care of your whole family.”

Is that A-Rod laughing in the background?

Canseco has captured the limelight first as Major League outfielder then, in 2005, as a whistleblower. That year, Canseco published his tell-book book about his use of anabolic steroids. His explosive revelations in his first book, Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big has caused major waves in the Major League. Canseco also claimed that up to 85% of major league players took steroids. In the book, Canseco specifically identified former teammates Mark McGwire, Jason Giambi, Rafael Palmeiro, Iván Rodríguez, and Juan González as fellow steroid users. Canseco said he has had injected them steroids himself. Most of the players whose names appeared in the book have denied using performance-enhancing drugs. Giambi has eventually admitted to steroid use in testimony before a grand jury investigating the BALCO case.

Then this year, Canseco has released his second offering, Vindicated: Big Names, Big Liars, and the Battle to Save Baseball, a book with basically the same plot as the first one – steroid use in Major League – but only with different set of characters. Notable of these characters is Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez.

But, now it looks like A-Rod is the one who is getting vindicated. Sure is A-Rod laughing in the background.
