Report: Canseco will finger others in book

Dec. 30, 2007 at 5:45 PM

NEW YORK, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Jose Canseco is set to unveil more names connected to baseball's steroids scandal, a report by the New York Daily News said Sunday.

The attorney for the former all-star outfielder said the names will be listed in Canseco's pending book, a followup to his 2005 best-seller "Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big."

Robert Saunooke, Canseco's attorney, told the newspaper the book's release date will coincide with the start of the 2008 season.

In a phone interview, Saunooke said former Sports Illustrated writer Don Yaeger is scheduled to collaborate with Canseco, but the publisher was not revealed.

Seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens was the biggest name listed in a 409-page report on the use of performance-enhancing substances issued this month by former Sen. George Mitchell.

Clemens has denied the accusation repeatedly, and is scheduled to discuss the issue in an interview with CBS News "60 Minutes" in January.
