Alex Rodriquez, Mags Ordonez, and Roger Clemens appear in Jose Canseco's book "Vindicated", according to Deadspin this morning. Not good.
Canseco tried implicated A-Rod last year, and also tried to blackmail Ordonez too. No surprise he names these 3 in his new book; however it is a surprise that he says A-Rod tried to sleep with his wife -- probably pre-implant-contest-Jessica. To Deadspin:
In the next week, you're going to see more of Jose Canseco that you likely have much desire to see. But Canseco has a new book coming out April 1, Vindicated: Big Names, Big Liars, and the Battle to Save Baseball, coming out just in time for opening day and promising to, once again, blow the lid off the steroid menace. Once again, he's naming names, and, according to a man named Joe Lavin, who bought a copy accidentally put on sale early at a Boston bookstore, those names are Roger Clemens, Magglio Ordonez and Alex Rodriguez.
Here's what Lavin reports him saying about A-Rod:
As for Alex Rodriguez, Canseco says he didn't inject Rodriguez, but that he "introduced Alex to a known supplier of steroids." Canseco didn't mention Rodriguez in the first book because he "hated the bastard." He was worried that people would have "questioned [his] motives" had he included Rodriguez.
Why all the hatred, you ask. Well, Canseco claims that A-Rod was trying to sleep with Canseco's wife. Apparently, even after Canseco had been nice enough to help A-Rod find a friendly steroids supplier, A-Rod kept calling Canseco's wife.
What did Canseco expect? He got A-Rod's libido all juiced-up...
