Jose Canseco offered Tigers' outfielder Magglio Ordonez an offer he could refuse, say sources within baseball: invest millions in a film project, and be kept clear of allegations of steroid use in Canseco's follow up to tell-all biography, Juiced. MLB referred the case to the FBI, but Ordonez declined to press charges, the New York Times reports.
'Absolutely not," Canseco responded to the allegations yesterday. Ordonez, however, claims that he had been contacted by the ex-slugger and associates, calling Canseco "desperate for money." As to whether Ordonez will find his name in the forthcoming Vindicated, Canseco said simply: "You are going to have to buy the book."
