Now that some of baseball's biggest names are coming clean on steroids, Jose Canseco is wondering when the league will apologize for vilifying him, the AP reports. The former slugger wrote two books that dealt with juiced players, but he got only grief for his efforts. "It's time for somebody in baseball to say to Jose Canseco, 'We're sorry you got treated the way you did,' " said his attorney.

"After being vilified and labeled an informant and a liar, all allegations, in both of his books, have now been proven to be truthful, including the recent news about Alex Rodriguez," wrote attorney Dennis Holahan in a letter to the players' union. (More Jose Canseco stories.)
