Next on the list....Manny Ramirez?

Jose Canseco next claim to be on steroids? Manny Ramirez. At speaking engagement Canseco believes he's one of 103 players tested for positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

Before so many quickly dismiss Canseco claim as bullshit just remember his claims in the past.

- of the many players he listed on "Juiced" they were caught from admission (Jason Giambi) to positive tests later on. Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire gave embarrasing testimonies to Congress while Rafael Palmeiro wagged his finger claiming he didn't use it. Palmeiro end up getting busted for later in the 2006 season and claimed his then-teammate Miguel Tejada injecting him with a tainted B-12 vitamin.

- in "Vindicated" claimed Alex Rodriguez used steroids. Alex came clean in February to admit using steroids from 2001 to 2003 after it was leaked in the media he was one of 103 players tested positives for performance-enhancers in 2003.

There is multiple sides to every story. ESPN Sportscenter crew quickly dismiss Manny and PED claims and mention Jose Canseco just trying to get his name out in public. Whether Canseco is right or wrong just remember how many dismiss his earlier claims til the real truth came out. Afterwards the critics turned around and went, "You know, maybe he is right all this time."
