Most interesting in this review are the snippets where some of the "facts" mentioned by Canseco are debunked.My favorite:
|The 2001 spring training conversation he "recalls" with Boone has already been debunked by ESPN.com's Jeff Merron here [link], along with a few other of Jose's fuzzy recollections. Some of these are details, like whether he pinch hit for David Cone in Game 4 or Game 6 of the 2000 World Series. Others are pretty substantial mistakes, like his account of a monster home run he hit off Walt Terrell in Detroit in 1986, which was actually hit in 1987. By Mark McGuire. Small detail.|
I'm betting this review is ten times better than the book...and I hate to give any attention to this book at all, but the link (I think) is worthy of reading.BUT, as this is a baseball blog by a guy who is linked on a lot of other blogs, I have to wonder... he is spelling Mark McGwire's name wrong on purpose... right?
