Jose Canseco: “if you didn’t take steroids, you were just a *%#$!, you were just not part of the team”

Go to Steroids.com for the video in which a shirtless Jose Canseco flexes his pecs Or, in his parlance, “makes [his] boobs bounce,” while talking about which steroids are the best steroids and berates (a) teammates for not using steroids; and (b) fans and media for being upset about steroids now when, back in the day, they secretly loved the 500 foot home runs.

Then reflect on the fact that there’s a website called Steroids.com which, before the video, talks about how it’s the best place to get anabolics on the web. Then ask yourself why federal prosecutors are going after guys like Barry Bonds and Lance Armstrong.

On Sunday, Rays outfielder Carlos Gomez hit a walk-off home run against the Twins. He was very fired up about his accomplishment and celebrated:

The Twins have already gotten upset with a player for bunting while Jose Berrios worked on a one-hit shutout. No one on the Twins said anything about Gomez’s antics, but even if they had, Gomez wouldn’t have felt any need to apologize, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Gomez said, “It’s something I know a lot of people are talking good about this, that baseball needs more of that. And some people say it’s not good. If enjoying and having fun in baseball is bad, I’m guilty.”

He added, “I was not trying to disrespect anybody. I was not looking to the other side, not looking at the ball. I was looking at my guys.”

Gomez also said that baseball is “getting a little boring.” His advice? “Enjoy it. Have fun. It’s competition.”

Can’t argue with that.
