Accusations from Jose Canseco have drawn the ire of his former manager. Canseco claims that he and Mark McGwire both used steroids while they were teammates in Oakland. Canseco even says that he injected McGwire with the performance-enhancing drug. Cardinals’ manager Tony LaRussa, who was the manager at Oakland at the time, doesn’t believe the claims, telling the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “I couldn’t disagree more. I categorically refuse to accept anything that Jose says about Mark.” LaRussa says that the claims about McGwire are driven by greed and jealousy. Canseco’s book, “Juiced: Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big.” In the book, Canseco also points the finger at Jason Giambi (who has admitted to using steroids) along with Rangers’ teammates Rafael Palmeiro, Pudge Rodriguez.
