SI identifies “Max” from Canseco’s book

Sports Illustrated has uncovered the identity of the supposed steroids dealer Jose Canseco says he introduced to Alex Rodriguez.

Joseph Dion confirmed some of Canseco’s story but denies giving Rodriguez any steroids.

Reporters from New York just spoke to Rodriguez, who admitted to working with Dion. “A good man, a real good man, actually,” Rodriguez. “I had no idea he even knew (Canseco).”

Rodriguez said he met Dion through Eddie Rodriguez, one of his mentors from Miami. He said he knows Dion socially and that they speak “four or five” times during the winter.

If what Dion and Rodriguez are saying is true, then Alex has nothing to worry about. The question now is whether federal investigators have any knowledge of crimes committed by Dion and can use that information to get him to testify against Rodriguez.

More on this story as it develops.
