THE JUICE With Jose and Mark McGwire everybody found out later on that they were doing stuff. Jose kind of blew the lid off all that with his book. I never saw anyone do anything at the park. As far as I knew, they were just bigger guys. I had seen them as younger guys, and they werent as big. I never lifted weights … never went in the weight room So, I didnt know if you could just get bigger by pumping the weights. If I didnt see anything, I wasnt going to make up any rumors about it. Besides Im just trying to keep my head down out here. This is just my opinion, but I do think the GMs knew it was going on. I think the writers knew. I think they all knew. But nobody was going to say anything because nobody wanted to be the first guy to open up that can of worms. When Jose opened up the can of worms, then everybody started going, going, going. I didnt know that certain guys were on it. I thought they were just big. I had played with Bo Jackson, and he was big. Imagine if Bo had come up in the 90s, everybody would have associated Bo with that and it would have been false. It was none of my business. I never saw it. I never thought about it. It was none of my business. I wasnt going to come over here to the Oakland As and start any kind of crap.
