First of all:
May 12 The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports Seattle Mariners 2B Bret Boone (back/groin) felt his left groin give out during the Tuesday, May 11 game with the Minnesota Twins. Boone limped when he ran the rest of the night and had the groin heavily packed in ice after the game.
Second - yes, there are many people who never did believe Bret Boone should be considered a top 2b. He had a phenominal 2001, a good 2002, and a great 2003 - however, before that he was an average 2b at best. His career BA - including his last 3 solid yrs - is .269. With the whispers that he got into "yoga" over the offseason and dropped weight, well, we all read that differently, and the people who's beliefs lead toward a darker reason for that also have an easier explanation for his 3 yr boom. Right now if you could get M. Giles for him Id jump at that.
