I think someone will offer him a minor league contract and a chance to make their team in spring training. I think the question is if he still has the desire and if he can swallow his pride enough to actually try and make a team.

This will definitely be one of the more interesting stories heading into the new baseball season. One of the former HR kings and one of the faces of the steroid scandal falls so far that he can't get a starting job anywhere.

That's actually quite funny, because the only time I've ever seen Boone off the playing field was at a Jack in the Box after the Mariners were ousted from the playoffs several years ago.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.
