Originally posted by ESPN.comPalmeiro issued a statement last month in which he denied he ever used steroids, and he emphatically backed up that assertion Thursday after his first practice of spring training. Palmeiro also said he's considered hiring the law firm of Orioles owner Peter Angelos to take legal action against Canseco.
"The one thing I can say is I have the best law firm and the best lawyer standing in the wings in Peter Angelos," he said. "I have options available for me. He stands behind me and he's ready. I will look at all my options and I'll decide."
If this does goes through, one must wonder who else may be beating the lawsuit drums?

"You're telling me you couldn't have had ME drive JBL's limo?"
I would say it's a safe bet that no one else would. Partly because they might be lying, but mostly because why bother? If this one lawsuit is successful in ripping apart Canseco's credibility, then everyone else is off the hook by default.

Because Palmeiro has lots of money. Peter Angelso has lots of money and may do it gratis. Canseco obviously is trying to make a buck. Sue Canseco, make Canseco go broke on legal fees or issue a retraction.
I think he's holding Little Caesar for ransom. I gotta shake my head at deals like this. I understand, or think I do, that a team like the Tigers has to overpay to make a splash in the free-agent market.
