The Lawyers I've heard discuss this issue have opined that it's all but an unwinnable case...

Also, the only reason it was looked into was because Peter Angelos offered for his law firm to take the case for Palmeiro. I doubt he would have done anything without Angelos.

It may be unwinnable, but it would still benefit Palmeiro's reputation to persue the case even in a losing cause.

Yep, it will help his rep for his bid to get into the Hall of Fame.Did you mean that in teal? I don't think what Canseco's defense lawyers will do to Palmeiro is going to help his cause too much.

I don't know how filing a libel suit helps Palmeiro's reputation if it gets tossed out in the early going. Plus, truth is a defense to libel + if Canseco finds witnesses to corroborate his claim it will be a real black eye for Palmeiro.

Palmeiro must not be taking Viagra anymore. I mean, if it took this long for Canseco to get a rise out of him... :redneck
