Swaye's Wigwam Solar Eclipse Donator Tenth Anniversary 10,000 Awesomes
What were your thoughts about Wade Boggs? The year he hit .370, he batted something like .430 at Fenway and .285 on the road. If you take away the Green Monster was he just an above average hitter? Or do you view him as a Hall of Famer?

I'll take my answer off the air.

    Within 90 minutes, @PurpleThrobber will probably have Boggs' ex-girlfriend's Playboy pictorial up in The Wam.

    Not as easy to source as one might think.

    Margo Stilley has quite the collection though.

    Anyone who can "allegedly" drink 107 beers on a cross country flight is a HOF'er in my book...

    Baseball-wise, my answer is yes. He used the Monster to his advantage, to great success. He hit .300 on the road as well, all while playing in an era where 3Bs were expected to hit bombs. He was kind of Ichiro before Ichiro, with his approach. Nobody pitches left-handed hitters in at Fenway (Pesky Pole), and he went with what they gave him. Teddy Ballgame stayed with pulling everything, giving us the OG version of the shift.

    ...anxiously (maybe) awaiting pix

    Damn. that was more work than I initially believed.

    Margo Adams was in PENTHOUSE, not Playboy.
