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.
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes. 
74 Secondly, this case is yet another of those all too frequent cases where, in order to impose a proper sentence on the Respondent, this Court has had to choose between the unfairness of unequal treatment of co-offenders and the injustice to the community of acquiescing in a second manifestly inadequate sentence because the Director of Public Prosecutions, while appealing in the case of the Respondent elected, or was not sufficiently organised, to appeal in the case of a co-offender. As the Respondent and Sayadi were both arrested on the same day and sentenced by the same judge some 2 weeks apart it is inconceivable that the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions was not aware of the relationship between them. In that situation it is impossible to see any rational explanation for the bringing of an appeal in one case and not in the other.
