I was at my local library the other day browsing the baseball books, and I saw "Juiced" by Jose Canseco, and I decided to pick it up. I read it, and I was shocked by the way the Conseco treated his use of steroids. He njot only said that he took them, he said that he didn''t regret doing it. In fact, he seemed happy that he used PED's. He talked about how he wanted to be the best athlete in the world, no matter what it took. He said that he injected people with steroids, and was "The Chemist", educating people about how to take steroids, and doing it himself. Maybe I am overreacting (I realize that no one is perfect), I am simply surprised that Canseco treated his steroid use the way he did. I want to hear other people's opinions-is Jose right in what he says and is it just me that disagrees with what he says, or do others think that he went too far?
He also talked about how Latin American players were treated worse than white players (he compared himself to Mark McGwire, the "All-American boy"). What are people's opinions of this? Is this true, or was Jose just overreacting to get people on his side?
Just some thoughts to start a discussion...
