Deadspin once again outstrips its MSM competitors, with this post featuring scanned pages from Jose Canseco's magnum opus, Vindicated. These pages are particularly juicy because they contain, in detail, Canseco's thinly veiled accusations that A-Rod took steroids, along with the explicit accusation that A-Rod wanted to step in the cage and take a few pitches from Canseco's wife (This link is to amazon and is work safe, but be very careful about image-searching Jessica Canseco. Very careful). Reportedly, this book contains a similar, but non-philandering, accusation about Magglio Ordonez, whom Canseco alleges he injected with steroids during their time with the White Sox.
So, what do we think?
Canseco seemed to be dead-on with the his last book, both about the proportion of MLB players taking steroids, and about the specific players he accused, but has he jumped the shark with this book?
Do Maggs and A-Rod pass the eye test, i.e. do they look like steroid abusers?
Are their numbers as damning as Bonds' numbers seem to be?
What say you, Cub fans?
Is Jose Canseco believable in this new book?
Absolutely. A-Rod and Maggs are definitely 'roid users. (7 votes)
Not quite. I think A-Rod did 'roids, but not Maggs. (0 votes)
