Mark McGwire on Jose Canseco: 'I don't care to ever speak to him again'
Mark McGwire says he wants nothing to do with former Oakland Athletics teammate Jose Canseco after Canseco wrote in a book that McGwire used steroids.
Canseco wrote in his 2005 book, "Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big,” that McGwire used performance-enhancing drugs during their time as teammates.
McGwire was not in the reconciliation mood when asked about Canseco. McGwire admitted to using PED's in 2010.
"It's too late. I don't care to ever speak to him again," McGwire told ESPN.com. "What he did was wrong."
Canseco apologized to McGwire and said he regretted writing the book.
"Mark, to me, when I played with him, I looked up to him," Canseco said last weekend. "I idolized him for a lot of reasons -- the guy was on the field, he was off the field. It haunts me till this day that I said those things about him, even though obviously they were true.
