'Oil Can' attempting comeback?

Postby fezzik » Tue Feb 17, 2009 7:56 pm

After 18 years of retirement 49 year old Dennis 'Oil Can' Boyd wants teams to take a look at him...he says he still throws in the low '90's with an effective change and a tight slider... :-?

My guess is that he will suffer an arm injury at some point.

Funniest thing I heard on this was Billy Ripken on MLB network saying that he heard he has the same stuff he did when he retired, but that was THE reason he retired in the first place...... :-b
