Jose Canseco thinks Major League Baseball has a bigger problem on their hands than active players like Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz being busted for steroids. He alleges that a current Baseball Hall-of-Famer used the juice.
“When you tell me something I didn’t already know, I’ll be surprised,” Canseco told ESPN. “And I’ll tell you this, Major League Baseball is going to have a big, big problem on their hands when they find out they have a Hall of Famer who’s used.”
When asked who the player was, Canseco refused to ellaborate:
“It’s not about naming names,” he said. “I’ve never had anything against the players. It’s always been against Major League Baseball. I know who’s on that list, but like I said, it’s not about attacking the players. It’s about the machine that allowed this to happen. What I speak out of my mouth is the truth. It burns like fire. Just remember, I have never lied about this subject.”
