You know you have to buy Jose Canseco's new book, Vindicated, if only to keep the characters and their plot lines straight. So ... Mike Wallace was hitting on Canseco's wife at the gym? Alex Rodriguez was yelling, "Ow, that hurts" when Canseco stuck the needle in his butt? Who was this "Max" guy again? But there's a much bigger reason for America to pay close attention to the sequel to Juiced. Because America was absolutely dead-on certain that Canseco's first steroid confessional/tell-all, from 2005, was as big a piece of fiction as Harry Potter -- and America was dead-on wrong.

Jose Canseco: Last Shot 10 p.m. [A&E] At one time, A&E was known as the Arts and Entertainment channel, notable for its programming a cut above normal network fare. And now the channel serves as an enabler for someone who has an apparent publicity addiction. Here's the show's description from the A&E Web site: Canseco "has used steroids himself for the past 24 years. Now, Jose wants to finally get clean, but he's terrified about what may happen when he goes through the process. There has been no medically documented case of someone quitting steroids after using them for so long, and the doctors have different opinions about what Jose will go through physically and mentally.

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- This is what happens when you play in the same division with the team that set an American League record with 114 victories: The Toronto Blue Jays won 88 games and still looked like a big loser, finishing 26 games behind the off-the-charts New York Yankees in the American League East.They won as many games as the AL West champion Texas Rangers, but were widely viewed as a team still working its way back to respectability after breaking up a two-time world championship team in the early 1990s.

So Jose Canseco's former lawyer is suing the slugger-steroid user-author for unpaid legal fees. In a Florida newspaper article, it was reported that the fees are alleged to be as much as $500,000, or even more, accumulated over a period of five years. Five years? Who works for five years without getting paid? The lawyer, Robert Saunooke, in an Associated Press story, explained that he considered Canseco a friend and that's why he deferred demanding payment. Canseco's new lawyer said Jose did pay Saunooke, in part with two World Series rings.

WASHINGTON - In the aftermath of Rafael Palmeiro's steroids-policy violation, the man who accused Palmeiro of using the drugs in a book six months ago declined yesterday either to gloat or to claim his credibility had been upheld. Rather, Jose Canseco - who seems to make a habit of saying the unexpected - came to the defense of his former Texas Rangers teammate. In a daylong series of media interviews, Canseco and his attorney, Robert Saunooke, raised doubts yesterday about whether Palmeiro was recently injecting performance-enhancing drugs - as Canseco accused Palmeiro of doing in the early 1990s.

Alex Rodriguez declined to address allegations by Jose Canseco, who says he introduced the three-time Most Valuable Player to a steroid dealer. "It's over as far as I'm concerned," Rodriguez said yesterday after his New York Yankees lost, 4-0, to the Philadelphia Phillies. "No further comment on the matter. I'm just excited to be playing baseball." In the book, Vindicated: Big Names, Big Liars, and The Battle to Save Baseball, Canseco writes that he introduced Rodriguez to a steroid dealer named "Max."

The crack of the gavel, the smell of freshly brewed coffee and the sight of overgrown men trying to blaze 100-mph lies wound tighter than a baseball past their star-struck target. Ahhhh. Must be spring. Must be baseball season. Today in Room 2154 of the Rayburn House Office Building - where they've argued health care, discussed terrorism and debated immigration - up to 40 members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will listen to tantalizing testimony and try to decipher just who stuck what into whose backside and when.

Even if anyone thought talk of steroids was going to go away by the start of next baseball season, now comes news that Jose Canseco is coming out with a second book sure to be filled with accusations of performance-enhancing drug use. Unlike the Mitchell Report, Canseco's book probably won't use much ink on the likes of F.P. Santangelo. Canseco certainly will point a syringe at some of the game's All-Stars, thus starting a new round of media 'roid rage. Mr. Flip isn't quite sure what the Mitchell Report was supposed to accomplish, but it seems to have kept this issue alive much more than putting it to rest.

If you miss Jose Canseco - and, really, who doesn't at this point? - for the small fee of $9.99 and airfare to Los Angeles, you can compete for a chance to spend a dream day with Jose and possibly win one of his prized baseball possessions. Even better, the whole thing will be captured by camera crews for a new reality show starring Jose and the handful of fans who come up with the most imaginative and outrageous ideas for their day with the Prince of Performance Enhancement. My first reaction to this was that Jose had reached a pathetic new low, which is no small task.

JUPITER, Fla. -- Guess I picked the wrong 10-day period to evaluate the ballclub. Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo is understandably excited about the prospect of getting back several of his top players as the World Baseball Classic draws to a close, but I'm going to have to be content in the knowledge that Brandon Fahey is going to be a pretty good player as soon as he gets out of middle school. I've never been known for my great sense of timing, so no one should be surprised that I arrived in Florida right after about half the Orioles' projected 25-man roster headed out to compete in baseball's version of the World Cup. Now, I'm headed home just as most of them are filtering back into camp.
