Boone was dropped in my league and picked up by a guy, who then had to drop Juan Uribe. We said, "Uribe's doing great, what are you doing?" but he felt confident Boone would get it going. So far, Boone hasn't, and we've been giving him a lot of crap.
I don't think Boone can possibly be as bad as he's been, but Edgar Martinez is no longer the hitter he once was and the rest of the lineup isn't much either, so Boone's value has dropped considerably from pre-season.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
