Jose Conseco Needs New Ghostwriter


Jose Conseco’s next book tentatively titled, Vindicated, has lost its ghostwriter/editor. Don Yaeger, a former Sports Illustrated writer, has passed on the project believing that there isn’t enough there to form a book.

Conseco’s first book, Juiced published by Judith Regan of the former Regan Books imprint, set off a firestorm within baseball when Conseco tore the curtain away that hid baseball’s dirty secret: years of high profile players taking performance enhancing drugs.

Not one player who was named in Conseco’s original book ever sued him for defamation and almost all of his allegations (if not all) were born out as truth in subsequent proceedings. (Who can forget Rafael Palmeiro standing before Congress and stating, under oath, that he never took steroids?)

Vindicated is supposedly going to expose Alex Rodriguez in some manner but the majority of baseball fans think he’s an ass already so perhaps Yaeger didn’t want to add to the pile on.

    Tee Hee. ARod is so special that people hated him before he was a Yankee. That’s saying something y’all. I always thought it was sad that it took a douche like Consenco to the blow the lid off the “steroid era.”
