Jose Canseco, a former professional baseball player, was claimed to be one of the most scorned individuals in steroid era of baseball. The former player was pushed out professional baseball after he had identified several well-known baseball players as consumers of steroids in his book “Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits and How Baseball Got Big”.
Everyone is against Jose Canseco. It is noted that if anybody supported him, it would be Steven Kettman. This person has been a co-author in writing the book of Canseco “Juiced”. But Kettman didn’t defend the former baseball player. Furthermore, he was on the opposite side. Being a guest of the Huffington Post, this writer pronounced several ridiculous words about Canseco’s latest incident related to anabolic steroids.
Jose Canseco tries to return to professional baseball. He has been invited to play for the “Tigres de Quintana Roo” of Cancun. This team is a part of the Mexican Baseball League. Playing for the “Tigres de Quintana Roo” would be the following stop of Canseco for returning to the MLB.
But his comeback to professional baseball has turned to be unsuccessful due to usage of Testosterone Cypionate and Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) for testosterone replacement therapy. A lot of pieces of news report that Jose Canseco has tested positive for steroids and has been suspended for application of steroids. But this isn’t true. Jose Canseco has claimed that he has only needed to present some documents that have supported his therapeutic need to be on TRT in order to be in Mexican Baseball League.
Steven Kettman doesn’t believe that the story about TRT is true. He claims that Jose Canseco should stop humiliating himself. This writer notices that Jose Canseco must discontinue acting so, as if he were a cartoon character.
Kettman didn’t make any distinction between medical Canseco’s need to take steroids for TRT and those that administer forbidden medications for performance-enhancing effects. Kettman notices that Jose Canseco continues to take forbidden medicines in order to induce enhancing performance.
Kettman has tried to disparage some myths related to steroids in the book “Juiced”. The book defends usage of steroids for therapeutic purposes and promotes application of these products for hormone replacement therapy in elder patients.
It is claimed that the most controversial words of the book are those where authors mention names of Mark McGwire, Juan Gonzalez, Rafael Palmeiro, Ivan Rodriguez, and Jason Giambi, noting that these professional baseball players take unfair advantages due to administration of steroids.
Not only Kettman has distanced himself from the book “Juiced”. Canseco has also claimed that he has nightmares about steroids since writing the book and that he repents about identification of these baseball players. He asked some of them for apologizing.
ESPN sportswriters criticize the former professional baseball player for desire to distance himself from the own bestseller.
