My uncle was telling me the other night at dinner he was reading a book I had to read. I was surprised to learn he was talking about Canseco’s “tell all steroid” book.

Uncle Jerry said he wasn’t a fan of Canseco, but thought he raised some interesting points in the book. From what I understand there are a lot of Dominican players making lots of money that might not be in the majors if it weren’t for steroids. Jose claimed he wouldn’t have had nearly the success if it hadn’t been for “the juice”. It even made him faster, he claims. Canseco was touting steroids as a way for players to make it big in baseball. From like high school, on up. I told my uncle I wasn’t interested in reading Canseco’s book. The real problem I have with books like his, is him getting his and then ratting out his fraternity.

Ball Four was the first book I ever read and it was different. Jim Bouton was basically talking about players wiping snot on other players arms and watching them throw up. Or drilling holes in the back of the bullpen to get some peeks up unsuspecting women fan’s dresses.

I’d be interested in hearing your take on Canseco’s book. Did you read it? Would you read it? What did you think?

One Response to “CANSECO’S BOOK”

  1. I like you don’t want to take the time to read it and probably for the same reasons.

    And from what I’ve heard, in a lot of cases, he’s bandering about these accusations with not a whole lot of proof.
