Juicy Juice in January
Globe's Names: "BATTING CHUMP It was originally scheduled to hit stores in time for spring training, but with the revelations about Barry Bonds and steroids, the publication of the juicy tell-all by former Bosox slugger Jose Canseco suddenly has been moved up to January. (Yes, there'll also be the requisite appearance on "60 Minutes" with Mike Wallace.) In "Juiced," the former Bash Brother, who's been out of baseball since 2001, reportedly IDs several big-name players who used illegal growth hormones. Luckily, no big names played for Boston, when Canseco was here in '95 and '96, so the Sox may not be smeared in the book. (OK, Mo Vaughn was on the team, but his body was definitely not the result of 'roids.)"

"Canseco's life after baseball remains bizarre. Having sold his 1988 American League MVP plaque for $30,000 and his rookie-of-the-year ring for $5,100 on eBay, Canseco is parting with his sports mementos. "Baseball is over," Canseco told the Miami Herald through Ames. "... I'm doing my new life, which is acting." Ames said Canseco doesn't need the money - he just lacks sentiment.
"We sold the MVP plaque because it was sitting around and the dogs were eating it," Ames said." -- Miami Herald
