Jose Canseco: Class Act

Jose Canseco is alleged to be in the blackmail business:

José Canseco, the former major league slugger and admitted steroid user who exposed other players in his 2005 best-selling book “Juiced,” offered to keep a Detroit Tigers outfielder “clear” in his next book if the player invested money in a film project Canseco was promoting, according to a person in baseball with knowledge of the situation.

The outfielder's name is Magglio Ordóñez, and if the allegations are true, Canseco's name is mud.

In other legal news, Chuck Knoblauch appears to be on the lam, and Barry Bonds has moved to have his indictment to be dismissed (my expert opinion on his chances of success: ain't happenin').

We are quickly approaching the point where I would drown puppies if it meant this freakshow would end and some actual baseball would start happening.

What's a little extortion amongst friends, huh? I mean, who hasn't tried to shake a buddy down for some cash?
