Old Friend, New City
The Nationals have brought in another member of the Boone family, in our old friend Brett. I can't remember the last time I heard his name. The 38 year old came out of retirement to try and make the Nationals as a utility man. I can't believe how long it's been since Boone got caught for steriods or something like that, was designated for assignment, and then traded to the Twins for a PTBN. Boone said he never took steriods, but in Jose Canseco's book Juiced, he says that during a game, he (Canseco) hit a double, and say Boone at second base, and asked him 'what have you been doing?' and Boone replied 'shhhh. Don't tell anyone.' Hard to believe how long it has been.
