The first thing that Grimsley explained is how amphetamines get passed around the league and why they’re used. Amphetamines are taken by players because they increase alertness, awareness, and physical energy. Grimsley said that a major source of the amphetamines around the league are the Latin players and those on California teams since they have a short drive to Mexico to pick up the drugs. He went as far as to mention how the amphetamines are placed in coffee pots marked “leaded” and “unleaded” to indicate which pots had the drug in them.
The Story: In February 2005 Canseco released his autobiography and steroid tell-all, Juiced , Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big. In it he described himself as 'the chemist' having experimented on himself for years. He claimed to have educated and personally injected many players including Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Juan Gonzalez, Ivan Rodriguez, and Jason Giambi. In his second book, Vindicated , Canseco added Magglio Ordonez to the list of players he had educated and injected with steroids. He also said he introduced Alex Rodriguez to a trainer/PED supplier after Rodriguez had asked where he could get steroids.
