The man, the myth, the legend. Jose started it all with his book, Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big in 2005. In said text, Canseco named names and created a scandal on par with the Black Sox and segregation in baseball. He claimed that about 85% of major leaguers are doping and that he personally injected McGwire, Juan Gonzalez, Ivan Rodriguez, Palmeiro and Jason Giambi. Two years later, Canseco published another book entitled, Vindicated, in which he outed Alex Rodriguez as a user. People thought he was full of shit until Alex came clean in 2009 and admitted to juicing during his time in Texas. Along with fellow "Bash Brother," Mark McGwire, he tore through the majors averaging 40 home runs a season during his 17-year career. He was the first member of the prestigious (not anymore) 40/40 club when he accomplished the feet in 1988. He was banging celebrities and was on top of the world until his back went on him and his off the field antics started to take their toll.
