A-Rod has no comment on Canseco's words about new book

When Jose Canseco wrote "Juiced" in 2005, he brought the issue of steroids in Major League Baseball to the forefront. Now, Canseco has another book due this fall and he promises some juicy info on Alex Rodriguez.

Canseco told WEEI-Radio in Boston on Friday that he has "other stuff" on the Yankees slugger, who he called a "hypocrite" who "was not all he appeared to be."

When asked if A-Rod had used steroids, Canseco told WEEI, "Wait and see."

"Jose has information about A-Rod and the Yankees that will be in the book. But, I am not sure if Jose is willing to disclose it at this point," Canseco's lawyer, Robert O. Saunooke, told The New York Times.

In Baltimore for the Yankees' game against the Orioles on Saturday night, Rodriguez told reporters that he hadn't heard Canseco's comments about him. "And I have no comment," he told the newspaper.

Canseco has shared names of more players who used steroids with investigators looking into the issue for Major League Baseball. George Mitchell, the former Senate majority leader, was appointed by commissioner Bud Selig in 2006 to head the league's investigation into steroids in the sport.

Saunooke told The Times that Canseco planned to meet again with Mitchell and and his investigators in the next month.

Canseco attracted the attention of Congress with his autobiography, "Juiced," in which the former slugger named several players, including himself, Rafael Palmeiro and Mark McGwire, who he said had used steroids.

Eh, I don't really care about anybody using steroids at this point. By the time his career is said and done, if he continues his pace, he'll still be the best baseball player ever in my book -- and this comes from a Red Sox fan.

Will this be a factor when it comes to his new contract if he opts out?

Just outta curiosity, what are your feelings on Bonds?

I cheer for Bonds... I want him to break the record. Then again, I generally tend to cheer for the guy that everyone else hates, with some obvious exceptions, though. :D

I'm in the camp (it's a small one, though) that believes that what Bonds has managed to do is absolutely amazing. I really don't care about steroids, to be honest. If someone is willing to take them, considering their dangers... more power to them.

Seems to me that Canseco is just craving attention again since his name hasn't been in the media in awhile.

That's what they said when the first book came out, and by they I mean everyone but me :P

So let's say that you are up for your dream job but part of the application process requires an IQ test. You are just as smart as the other three candidates up for the job and your qualifications are pretty much equal. The company has decided that since all the candidates are equal on paper they'll hire the person with the highest score on the IQ test. The test is worth 100 points. You score a 93 which is good for second place. The company hires the guy who scored a 97. Here's the thing, the guy with the 97 cheated. He had the answers in advance. Without cheating he would have scored an 89 which is still pretty damn good but he wanted to be the very best so he cheated. If he doesn't cheat you get your dream job. You are fully aware that the guy who got the job cheated to get it. It's obvious to anyone but no one can come up with hard proof that he cheated. After the interview the company asks you to answer some questions about their hiring process. They ask you about the guy who beat you out for the job. Do you tell them " I wanted him to get the job. I don't really care about cheating. He was willing to cheat. He considered the risk. More power to him."

Just curious...

In this case, the guy's already a good deal smarter than me to begin with. Bonds and Griffey were easily the best everyday players of the 90's. He's just gotten to an out-of-this-world good level at this point. And in that point, if I had a way to get the answers in advance I'd sure as hell cheat too. :D

It's been a game of cheaters as long as they've been playing it.

And many people never realize this.

Then, I say the guy is twice as dumb because he had the answers in advance and STILL got a 97.... ^_^

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! :D

It's amusing that National League owners got together in the 1890s to create the first American pro soccer league as a way to keep their stadiums full during the off-season. However, it only lasted a single season because ostensibly NL owners wanted to focus on their league in the face of potential competition. In reality, the Baltimore team was already under investigation by the US government for bringing English pros into the country illegally, as well as poor crowds (despite some well-attended matches), most of whom staying away because they commented how they expected this league to be as crooked as their baseball edition was at this time. :D

I think that the A-Rod thing will most likely be a character attack (cheating on his wife, etc) although I'm not sure where Canseco will be getting his information as he never played with A-Rod.

Maybe he slept with A-Rod
