I really enjoyed Juiced, but this book was repetitive to what was written in his first. I would definitely recommend this book to people who like baseball or sports in general and would like to get a deeper understanding of the sport. It’s a cop out if anything. That is a big killer in the MLB because no one like players who do that because it is cheating.
So I kind of suspected, you know, Roger Clemens, the best pitcher of our era. Major League Baseball paid Mitchell to conduct this. The rest of Vindicated is cansedo rehash of Juiced and stroking his ego ad nauseum. But I don’t disagree with him. And both of them actually broke home run record. But, yeah, he’s right.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. However once again Conseco is very protective of his own behavior. Maybe even an apology. Comparing yourself and saying your better than Ripkin is just asinine on your part. Read Juiced about three weeks before I started this book.
Canseco regrets naming names in his book about steroids
It all seems a little needy and desperate. He has a Nov. You say that he did joke about taking B shots The book ended with Canseco remembering his childhood and also not regretting all that has happened in his life and how he keeps moving forward in life with no regrets.
Record-breaking athletes are falling from grace, and the infamous Mitchell Report confirmed the names of major leaguers who have indeed used steroids while vindciated remain under investigation.
Vindicated (book) – Wikipedia
I would recommend this book to anybody that joe baseball. He really did blow the lid off the steroids scandal, named names, and got banished from MLB because of it.
I’m still a pariah to Major League Baseball. Still a scumbag and a dirtball, and he is at times extremely hypocritical, but you have to respect the guy for bringing this “era” to light and really standing up for himself. Lest there be any doubt about theveracity of his claims, Canseco subjected himself to three lie detector tests, one of which was conducted by a former FBI special agent and top polygraph examiner who investigated the Unabomber, Whitewater, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the bombing of the World Trade Center.
An entertaining read, for sure, if you are a baseball fan and curious about the darker side of the sport. Jose Canseco, whose book “Juiced,” which focused attention on the use of performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball and led to congressional hearings on the subject, now says he canseoc should have written the book and named names of alleged steroid users.
I thought this book was very good because there is a guy who use to take steriods and now he is amititing that he did use them. He was drafted by the Oakland Athletics, eventually playing for seven different josd teams, winning several awards, vihdicated hitting home runs in his seventeen-year career.
If I took steroids, because there’s a lot of kids now that are reading about this. Today, Canseco lives a quiet life in California with his daughter, Josie. InJose Canseco blew the lid off Major League Baseball’s steroid scandal — and no one believed him.
On December 30,it was announced that Canseco has reached a deal for his sequel to Juiced. He likes to ride his motorcycles. On the other hand, you can’t blame Canseco for rubbing it in. While some of his ideas regarding the motivations of the entities working against him may have a hint of paranoia at their root, his statements on baseball and the scandalous actions that he first shined a light on in Juiced were also to be absolutely correct. This was 20 years ago You know, I’d spoken to Alex briefly about it in the past.
He likes to play poker. A much hated dirtbag’s tale of redemption. Yeah, while I agree that he was vindicated by the truth, and in fact is the only trust-worthy person in this whole steroids debaucle, this was an unnecessary book. The answer is clear: You get to cqnseco what Jose does now days. I absolutely do not recommend this book.
It is quite repetitive, making the quite accurate point over and over again that Canseco was right about steroid use in MLB. You also hint in this book, in the new book, in “Vindicated,” that Roger Clemens, from Texas, friendly with the Bush family, and that his name was kept off certain news reports.
The commissioner may have known it.

They were created and invented for medicinal purposes to help individuals out, especially after certain, you know, long surgeries that take a lot of hours, where the blood drainage is incredible.
