MLB may have a new steroid policy, but that isn’t going to stop Jose “The Chemist” Canseco from appearing on CBS’s “60 Minutes” to pimp his new book, Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits and How Baseball Got Big. The segment will air just in time for the beginning of spring training, according to Publishers Weekly.
The book, which had been shopped and rejected all over town, found a home with—no surprise here—ReganBooks. What can we expect? “Bombshells.” But don’t expect a literary homer; Jose went through three ghosts on the project, which will have a reported first printing of 150K. (Our guess: divide by half and you’ll be getting closer to the real number).
[UPDATE: Due to popular demand, CBS News—could there be a more appropriate venue?—has moved the Canseco interview forward to February 13th, with the book's release set for the next day. Will Jose's pants actually ignite on national television? Stay tuned....]
