After first telling the Sun-Times early Saturday morning in a text that he “could care less what Canseco says or what Jay writes,’’ White Sox general manager Ken Williams obviously had a little more time to think about a story that appeared in the newspaper in which Jose Canseco said that Williams knew about the steroid use on his team in 2001 – the lone season Canseco played on the South Side.
In the article, Canseco said, “Of course, they knew. They didn’t care. They all knew – abso[bleeping]lutely. [Williams] was a player [in the past]. He knew.’’
It was in his book “Vindicated’’ that Canseco alleged that he introduced former Sox outfielder Magglio Ordonez to steroids.
Hours before the game with Detroit, and now reading what Canseco said, Williams said that he will explore legal actions against Canseco. He also called the one-time slugger “a liar.’’
