ESPNews reports Jose Canseco claimed Major League Baseball knew about 1B Rafael Palmeiro's positive drug test before the congressional hearing last March and used Palmeiro, a fellow Cuban, to go up against Canseco. "They're mafia, point blank, they're mafia," Canseco said. "I don't think Major League Baseball is enthused about finding out the truth. There needs to be a major cleanup in Major League Baseball. I think they are treading on very thin ice, and (commissioner) Bud Selig has to be very careful what he's doing because his job is on the line."

The Baltimore Sun reports free-agent 1B Rafael Palmeiro (Baltimore Orioles) continues to insist a B-12 shot administered by SS Miguel Tejada may have been the cause of his positive steroid test, but he admitted blame may lie with himself. Palmeiro also didn't address whether he would play next season. "I would think it was the B-12. I'm not certain of that; I can't prove it," Palmeiro said. "I'm going to take the responsibility, me being careless and taking something I wasn't knowing if it was clean. ... It was careless, stupid, naive of me to think it was safe."
