He's a knuckleballer, I'd love to see him pitch I bet he has a pretty good fastball too

Jose Conseco -- The Last Honest Man in Baseball returns.

And I say that without an ounce of sarcasm.

You can say what you want about him, but revisit his book. You may disagree with some of the details but he was broadly correct and specifically as it applies to a few players who called him an outragous liar at the time. At least he has an iota of integrity left.

I wish him well.

well i don't know if i'd say he's the last honest man, but i agree someone what your sentiment.

he's a cheater, but he does seem honest (true, it's only now that it benefits him to be honest).
