Canseco ready to release book

Jose Canseco plans to release a sequel to his book Juiced by Opening Day.

From ESPN.com:

Robert Saunooke, Canseco's lawyer, told The New York Daily News and The New York Post that the book, which has a working title of "Vindicated" will be co-authored by former Sports Illustrated writer Don Yaeger.

"Jose already has a lot of stuff put together," Yaeger told The Daily News.

Disappointed by the Mitchell report, Canseco hopes to publish "an unjaundiced view, without the rose-colored glasses" of steroid use in baseball, Saunooke told The Post.

"The book is basically going to be -- I don't want to say an attack -- but it will be a clarification of why certain names should have been mentioned [in the Mitchell report] that were not mentioned," Saunooke said of the new book. "We had hoped that the Mitchell report would have been more revealing. It basically ended up being nothing more than [Mitchell saying], 'I talked to a lot of people, some people wouldn't talk to me and it's up to the commissioner,'" Saunooke told The Daily News.

Canseco claimed he had "other stuff" on Alex Rodriguez, and that may be included in this book. Should be interesting to see what Canseco has on Rodriguez, and hopefully it doesn't pose a distraction.

It will definitely affect Alex Rodriguez. He'll need to have Clemens' firm look into the false allegations made about him. As lawyers say: Time takes money. But, A-Rod gets paid enough so that he can afford such unnecessary dilemmas.

By the way, would you like to trade links? I have created a brand-new baseball blog at http://raysbaseball.blogspot.com
