Jose was a six time All Star, two time AL home run champion, four time Silver Slugger award winner and two time World Series champion. After baseball, Jose wrote the 2005 book "Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big". In the book Jose claims that the majority of Major League baseball players used steroids openly throughout the 80s and 90s. He has since become a bit of a controversial figure in the sports world and is alienated from most of his former baseball friends and teammates. During his career, Jose earned $45 million in salary before taxes and fees. His peak salary was the $5.8 million he earned from the Boston Red Sox in 1995. Like many athletes, Jose spent his money nearly as quickly. He recently has claimed he is no longer even a millionaire.
