Jose Canseco was interviewed by ABC’s Nightline news show and refused to produce any evidence to back up his claim that he introduced Alex Rodriguez to a steroids dealer. “The timing’s not right,” he said.
“Let’s see how Alex reacts to this,” Canseco said. “Let’s see how Alex reacts. Let’s see if they call me a liar again. How’s that for you? Let’s see if all of a sudden they’re gonna call me a liar again.”
Rodriguez has yet to respond directly to Canseco’s charges. Team officials said during the day that they expected a statement to be released. But as of now, that has yet to happen.
Rodriguez has a team of handlers led by Hollywood agent Guy Oseary and Manhattan PR man Richard Rubenstein.
Canseco’s book is due to be released on April 1 – April Fool’s Day.
