Call it a steroid showdown.
NEW YORK (AP) - Jose Canseco says he has been subpoenaed by a
grand jury investigating whether Roger Clemens lied to Congress
when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs.
Canseco posted on his Twitter page Tuesday that the FBI was
about to visit his house, then said he had received a subpoena to
appear before the grand jury "about roger clemens,andrew pettite
and others" on April 8.
Pettitte has acknowledged taking human growth hormone and told
congressional investigators that Clemens informed him a decade ago
that he used HGH.
Canseco wrote in a 2005 book that he introduced several players
to steroids and performance-enhancing drugs. But the slugger has
said he has no knowledge of Clemens using drugs.
