SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – Jose Canseco calls Barry Bonds’ perjury trial in federal court “ridiculous.”
Canseco, a former Oakland Athletic, said he hasn’t started following the trial, but plans to keep an eye on the proceedings in San Francisco. Canseco said Bonds isn’t the only former major leaguer who has lied under oath. He wonders if federal investigators will pursue other ballplayers for the same crime.
Canseco said he doesn’t know if Bonds ever used steroids.
The former AL MVP has kept his name in the spotlight since writing his tell-all books implicating former “Bash Brother” Mark McGwire and other notable players.
He is currently competing on Donald Trump’s television show, “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
He also plans to play again this summer for an independent minor league team.
