Canseco is on the publicity trail for his new book "Vindicated" coming out.... sometime.
He's as difficult and irrasible and annoy as he was as he was pumping his first book about steroids.
I remember listening to a local radion program here out of Boston. There is a local TV sports guy named Steve Burton who is good friends with Canseco (who played for the Red Sox at the end of his career) and is a sometimes guest on the afternoon program (the Big Show). Canseco, who was starting try and get some pub for his first book was a guest on the show for a segment with Burton, the host and co-host (Glen Ordway & Pete Sheppard) and a baseball writer of note, Steve Buckley. The interview was one of the most surreal moments I've heard on radio. Canseco was throws out teases and Buckley, Ordway and Sheppard were trying to get more info, and Canseco just kept saying "you'll have to read my book when it comes out". After about 3 or 4 minutes of this there was a pause, and then they started laughing in frustration because they just couldn't crack the shell. Canseco hinted at big allegations, and startling evidence, and when pressed for what that was supposed to mean he just said "get my book in September".
Burton was on a few months later (after the September publication date was missed) and Canseco again appeared, apparently expected to reveal a bit more, and stonewalled them yet again.
He's back at it again. He's on the stump for his new book, and he's just as annoying as he was then. Only now he's got the ears of the world. Now he's after Alex Rodriguez, while giving support to Clemons.
Who knows where it goes, but Canseco is just an cloying, annoying, pathetic human being.
