    Just when you thought the conversation about steroid use in baseball was over and done with, Alex Rodriguez continues to break Major League records with every at-bat. This season, he passed Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time home run list and Barry Bonds for fourth on the all-time RBI list, feats that must have old school baseball fans cringing. At this point, no self-respecting can watch a baseball travel 450 feet without thinking about the bat who cried wolf. It’s a mess baseball has yet to clean up.

    Looking for some closure, I recently picked up a used copy of Jose Canseco’s Vindicated to see what the former bash brother had to say about his time in the big leagues and his time with the needles.

    Willie Mays was a black man breaking records, and at the time im sure there were people who felt Blacks had an unfair advantage for having African voodoo blackman blood in their veins.
    Its all a bunch of bullshit men use to cook their own books when they run out of woodchips to burn.
    Besides, records are for playing.
    If the song is good then the record stands the test of time.
    If not then the song remains the same.

    Rube...

    To this day, I contend that one of the best sports bios I've ever read is Hank Aaron's "I Had A Hammer."

    Pick it up used, man.

    You would not believe the shit that guy had to go through when he was chasing down Babe Ruth.

    i know man, i sometimes i throw my voice when i write
    its easier to couch things in a voice of someone who doesn't really know what he's talking about
