I just had to comment on this story in the Globe and Mail by Ronald Blum. Lets look at some of it:
Interesting idea, I'm not the local lawyer but I'd have to guess he doesn't have much of a case.
I'm not either of those two but I think if I were I'd be far more likely to want to sue Jose for continuing to bring my name up in stories about steroids.
Shouldn't that be definition of character? I think the man has shown us more about his character that we ever really wanted to know.
Raise your hand if you figured Jose Canseco would get a manager job in the major leagues. Yeah I didn't either.
I'm not a judge, nor do I play one on TV but I think I can guess that a judge would just throw it out quickly.
How far they want to go? Likely as far from you as posible, Jose.
It was endorsed by MLB? Now there is something I'd like to see proved in court.
If 104 names were on that list of players that tested positive, how do you go from that to 80% of players were using? And no I don't think people are going to be 'amazed' to see who is on the list. I think most people are pretty much over being amazed to hear someone was using. No one was amazed or even surprised when Sosa's name came out. I think we are all numbed to the whole thing by now.
I do wish that Canseco would have taken better care of the millions he made as a player, because then he could have disappeared into the obscurity he richly deserves.
