I watched with interest last night's "60 Minutes" interview with Jose Canseco. So did Skip Bayless. How do you react to this situation, considering the fact that Canseco's not telling us anything we don't already know.

The only place Mike Wallace was able to trip Canseco up was on the number of times he injected Mark McGwire. He writes in the book he did it several times, while he said in the interview he did it only a couple of times, then revised that by saying that sometimes one player prepares the needle for the other to inject.

As for Tony LaRussa, who's rushed to McGwire's defense, I'll say this: Based on what I've read about him, he's a great manager, but a book-smart guy. How else could you explain George Will's infatuation with him? With that in mind,I don't think it would be real hard to hide steroid use around him.
