Turns out Jose Canseco, who zealously hyped his book Juiced, now says that book about steroids in baseball was his "biggest mistake." Canseco, charged last week with a misdemeanor after U.S. immigration officials said he returned from Mexico with a drug that is illegal without a prescription, says in Monday night's A&E Network's The Last Shot special that he shouldn't have written the book and "regrets mentioning players (as steroid users). I never realized this was going to blow up and hurt so many people."As Hiestand says: "[D]oesn't seem that hard to have predicted." My guess is that Jose would be less regretful if his quickie sequel had sold as much as Juiced did.
In the meantime, I don't think Jose should expect any sympathy from Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmiero, or the rest of the 1990s Texas Rangers.
