Jose Canseco is sorry he wrote “Juiced”

Being an outspoken iconoclast and revealing the dirty secrets of one’s peers can be a brave and noble thing. But if you do it, you gotta be prepared for the fact that it’s gonna turn you into an outcast. Sadly, that’s something Jose Canseco never realized.

For whatever else he has done, he will always be remembered as the guy who blew the lid of steroids in baseball with his book, “Juiced.” Which would be fine for him if he owned it and appreciated it and had set his life up in such a way to where the backlash it caused him within the game of baseball didn’t hurt him.

Sadly, that hasn’t happened.  And it leads him to tweet stuff like this in the dark of the night:

 

He later talked about wishing he had a time machine and could go back before he wrote that book — said it ruined his life — and said that he gets depressed at night because of what he did.

Sorry, Jose. It’s the life you chose. Too bad there wasn’t anyone in your life at the time you decided to do it to warn you of the consequences of taking that course of action. Or, if there was, too bad you didn’t listen.
