Jose Canseco was Right Once Again

He's a turd of a human being and a rat and an alleged woman beater but when it came to steroids Jose Canseco was dead on.

Almost everyone he's named as a steroid cheat in his books has proven to be, well, a steroid cheat.

If the report about Alex Rodriguez is correct, Rodriguez would be the latest player named by Canseco as an alleged steroid user who was.

Remember, Canseco claimed that he introduced Rodriguez to what Canseco said was a known steroid user.

Canseco is a despicable person who deserves to have his ass kicked.

But he sure did nail this steroid mess.

Meanwhile, the home run kings are falling so quickly legends like Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron look better every day.

Don't forget one big thing. A-Rod seems to be a horrible human being. Petite has never caused trouble outside of baseball

Why is this such a shock to everyone, It was not eligle in baseball to use steroids in 2003, so players did, I bet 75% of players did, If a player tested positive after 2003 when it was eligle in baseball then it should be a story, until then let it go, it is not going to do anything but ruin player image as well as the league image

You would think that with all of A-Rods self imposed image issues, he would have done all possible to keep himself untainted.  Now he is no better than any of the other juicing stars in MLB.  I think it is about time that the fans to hold a strike against the players.  They were forgiven once for their behavior (player strike in the 90's).  How much more do we, as fans, have to take?  It seems that no one is a clean player any more...or very few.

Let's not jump to conclusions, first off, these test were non-disciplinary and private.  So who knows what is accurate and what was not.  Secondly, he did it in 2003, when there was no rule against, so how exactly did he cheat?  If you do something that there is no rule against, then you are not cheating.  For example, if at your jump, you steal a pen, are you a thief?  Should you always be known as a criminal for stealing a pen from your work?  At what point do we cross that line, that is something that we'll never know.

The bottom line is like Mark McGwire who is being unfairly criticized, A-Rod may have used a loophole in the rules to his advantage.  A-Rod has NEVER tested positive since it became against the rules, and therefore, has NEVER CHEATED.  Same with McGwire....Now Palmeiro---He's a cheater, he tested positive after it became against the rules.

Personally, I think the steroid thing is way overblown and silly...Let's deem this era of baseball what it was---It was the steroid era, most great players were on them, but they all belong in the HOF.  The Hall is for the best players, not the nicest people, if you want to make a HOF for nice people, Bonds, McGwire, Clemens, A-Rod, and Pete Rose for that matter should not be in.

If you want to make a HOF for baseball, Pete Rose, Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds, A-Rod, Clemens---They all belong in because they were still the best players of their era, whether they were on steroids or not.

Besides, who knows what Hank Aaron or Babe Ruth took?  Steroids have been around forever, and there were always other performance enhancers before that, who is to say that those guys didn't do something illegal back then, or Roger Maris?  We have no way of knowing who really did steroids, and who didn't, and we have no way of knowing how many Eras of players did steroids....These guys were rookies once and they learned to do this stuff from veterans so my guess is this stuff has been going on for quite a long time, long before the ones who got caught, I bet you half the HOF is sitting there going, wow, they finally caught us, and good thing they didn't test in my era or I would be busted.

The steroid scandal is what it is, it's time to move on, and they should all be in the HOF...So should Pete Rose, BTW, now more than ever, as he never did any drugs or anything illegal, he simply bet on his team to win as a coach, as a player, there is no evidence he did anything that should keep him out of the Hall.

After reading the first page of comments, I agree with you, where is that list? Is it in the article? Are the players already been named and therefore they don't feel the need to re-name them? I don't know. It's disturbing to think that only A-Rod was named. That in essence would describe a witch hunt. I think that A-Rod is a great player, but not having been by his side for 24/7 I don't know if he took steroids.

WHat does that mean?  No one is suggesting without steroids Bonds or Arod wouldn't have been good - they just would not have been that GREAT.  Therefore they do not deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Ruth, Gehrig, Aaron & Mays...  And no Hall membership is the perfect punishment for the crime. 

Roids allowed the good ones become Great, the average become good & many minor leaguers got that big paycheck - the problem is that the minor leaguers that played by the rules got knocked out of their big chance,  Aaron and Maris no longer have their records and there are I am sure many average players that never got that BIG contract because of the lesser player who cheated and therefore was able to do a little bit more.

All that being said, I would have to say if I had just enough talent to make it to Triple-A and I knew I could get to that next level using Roids, I am sure I would have used - especially if they weren't testing.  I have abit more sympathy for those guys than the selfish Bonds, Clemens, and Arod's of the world...

Oh come off it Express..."His time of need?" "Our third baseman"? You want to hold a candlelight vigil for him?

1) A-Rod doesn't need or want anything from us. He's made his own choices, he made all his money. You think he cares what any of us do? If there's one thing you should take from this it's this: none of these guys care about anything other than themselves.

2) I'm a Yankee fan, and he's not my anything. He's a player on a team I follow, and beyond that, I could care less about his personal drama or issues. He brings them upon himself, and he can deal with them himself

3) It wasn't a terrible day for me at all. Why would it be? Does A-Rod getting busted for steriods have anything to do with my life? How does it affect me at all? I root for the Yankees, and win or lose, at the end of the day, you go to bed, you get up the next day, and you get on with your life. Why should the off the field issues of A-Rod be terrible for me? It's not like he couldn't have avoided it had he just made intelligent choices about his life.

It's a terrible day for Yankee fans.  I read all these comments from Yankee fans and love what I see.  Backing up A Rod.  Sure everyone else calls him A Fraud or A Roid, but I will support  A Rod 100%.  If he did this or not.  I personally don't care.  If he did sure, he was one of thousands that did if not great.  They did the stupid Mitchell report and got hundreds of name from few sources.  Could you imagine all the names that would have come out if they didn't just ask a Yankee club house attendent??

I do have to say that I usually wait until opening day to display my Yankee flags in front of my house but, this year I felt the need to put them out today, as a sign of support for our thrid baseman.  This is my small contribution to backing Alex in this time of need.
