-- Jose Canseco calls Barry Bonds' perjury trial in federal court "ridiculous."

Canseco says he hasn't started following the trial, but plans to keep an eye on the proceedings in San Francisco. Canseco says Bonds isn't the only former major leaguer who has lied under oath. He wonders if federal investigators will pursue other ballplayers for the same crime.

Canseco says he doesn't know if Bonds ever used steroids.

The former AL MVP has kept his name in the spotlight since writing his tell-all books. He's competing on Donald Trump's television show, "The Celebrity Apprentice."

He also plans to play again this summer for an independent minor league team. On Saturday, Canseco puts the gloves on for another celebrity boxing bout.
