Jose Canseco - blackmailer
« on: January 24, 2008, 08:57:08 AM »
Guess Mr. Canseco is desperate for cash. He's writing another book (reportedly entitled "Vindicated") and he is now accused of having told Magglio Ordonez that he had "the goods on him" and if Ordonez paid Canseco, he wouldn't put the story in his new book.

Canseco adds blackmail to resume
Report: Mr. Steroids offered to keep Ordonez 'clear'

NEW YORK (AP) -- Jose Canseco offered to keep Magglio Ordonez "clear" in his upcoming book if the Detroit Tigers outfielder invested in a movie project promoted by Canseco, The New York Times reported Wednesday night.

The newspaper cited "a person in baseball with knowledge of the situation" in a report on its Web site and said four people in baseball, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Major League Baseball referred the matter to the FBI.

An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

What little credibility Canseco had is gone now.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

I didn't even like him when he played for my Texas Rangers.  I feel better now knowing all these thins about him! :\  I guess some players will do anything for money.
