Interesting quote from Ron Kittle, the geeky-looking former Chicago White Sox rookie of the year, who, for whatever reason, chimed in on this whole steroid nonsense. His biggest concern? Jose Canseco's personal safety.
Kittle, told The Chicago Tribune that Canseco has plenty of enemies, especially after he willingly trampled all over the professional athlete's clubhouse omerta.
"My first thought was: 'I wonder who's going to be the first one to shoot him'. I still think somebody who might have had their life ruined might take vengeance on him. If I were [Canseco], I would think about that...That's how I look at things. Maybe it's the wrong way, but I think in [bad] economic times when kids are exposed to it and they get to the big leagues to make the money, they will do [steroids]. But it's the wrong path. It's a quick fix. ..There is a sign in just about every clubhouse: 'What you see here, what you say here, let it stay here when you leave here.'"
So if Canseco suddenly gets an invite from Mark McGwire, Jason Giambi, Pudge Rodriguez, and A-Rod to go on a boating trip, he should decline. Just not in the face guys, okay?
