    From ESPN -

    Jose Canseco said he couldn’t believe that Alex Rodriguez wasn’t named in the Mitchell report. But A-Rod says in an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” he’s never even been tempted to use performance-enhancing drugs.

    In the interview, scheduled to air Sunday, when asked by Katie Couric if he had used steroids, human growth hormone or another performance-enhancing drug, Rodriguez said, “No.”

    “I think baseball’s done a fine job of implementing some very strict rules,” Rodriguez said in the interview. “I mean, I got tested eight or nine times. I know some of my teammates got tested, you know, seven, eight … times and, you know, if you think about where the game is today versus where it was six years ago, I think Major League Baseball has made some nice strides.”

    Canseco’s name appears 105 times in the Mitchell report, more than that of Barry Bonds (103) or Roger Clemens (82). In all, the 409-page report identified 86 names to differing degrees, but Clemens clearly was the symbol.

    “I saw the list of players, and there are definitely a lot of players missing,” he told Fox Business Network. “I don’t know what they accomplished or what they are trying to prove.”

    Prodded further about players not included, Canseco said this of A-Rod: “All I can say is the Mitchell report is incomplete. I could not believe that his name was not in the report.”

    When asked if he was going to start a blog, and mention his opinion on A-Rod there, Canseco said that he didn’t see the point – because many baseball fans only want to read things that are in 100% agreement with their opinion (and not something that dares to differ from what they believe to be true).

      Canseco had 1942 career strikeouts. He just added to that total.
