Canseco Reportedly Unloads on A-Rod in New Book

A fellow by the name of Joe Lavin claims to have snagged an early copy of Jose Canseco's new book, and based on his review, it's gonna be pretty ugly:

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.

And, in case there's any further confusion about Canseco's true feelings, he ends the chapter by saying:

So A-Rod, if you're reading this book, and if I'm not getting through to
you, let's get clear on one thing: I hate your f***ing guts.
We'll have to wait a week or two to see if this is true, but Lavin appears to be a journalist of some type, so if he's making up the content of the book he has just committed career suicide. As for Canseco's allegations? He has a history of being right about the big things while being wrong about the little things, so who's to say how this all cuts?

The only thing we know for sure is that the New York Post is going to have a blast coming up with headlines.

When asked about the Canseco's allegations of ARod calling on Canseco's wife, AROD says something to the effect of:

"I have no idea how to answer that question."

Really?!? Well you'd better figure it our fast, buddy!
