    Can't imagine why Ordonez wouldn't want to pursue that ... I'm just baffled ... shocked, even.

    Re: Canseco blackmailed Ordonez

    I figured.

    Every time I read something on Canseco, I feel a little cheated for rooting for this fucker all through the late '80s and 90s. Is he really so self-involved that he thinks people will be interested in his "film project"? And if Ordonez was really blackmailed, good for him for saying no. Who the hell would take Canseco's word over Ordonez's -- or anyone else, for that matter?

    Yeah, Canseco opened the doors for the investigation, or at least helped get it going, but it seems all he's doing is attempting to stay in the spotlight. And that's just fucking sad, considering what this guy used to be.

    Sir, I don't think anyone seriously would think Canseco would waste a second talking to Rey Ordonez. Few would.

    If Rey was ever on steroids, they certainly didn't help.
