Last month it appeared that our favorite former Juiced slugger, Jose Canseco, had some serious heat on his tail for attempting to blackmail the King of Oh-Face, Magglio Ordonez. Since that news item made waves across the country there has not been one single follow-up story to the case. Sounds like typical anti-Canseco fodder to me and no, I am not being biased.
The latest ridiculous story comes from this whole Steroids vs. Roger Clemens deal that is unfolding more and more with each day that passes. Did he Juice? Probably so. When? I am guessing sometime in 1998 when he and Jose were teammates. Come to think of it, Shawn Green had a career high that season. So did Carlos Delgado and I am certain Jose had something to do with it but for some reason their name has been left off Canseco’s stories. Check out this article about a party Jose threw in 1998 that Clemens might or might have not attended. Yeah, it’s getting pretty silly these days.
Thanks to Jason Hartigan for the news update! As a reward, here are some 90’s baseball cards of Jose, the caricature. Sadly, he remains more cartoon-ish than ever these days. I just hope all this bad publicity dies down and the hypocrites who have done nothing but lie to the fans get called out for their bullshit.
Who can name 2 out of the 3 cards scanned below?
