Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd and Wade Boggs were teammates on the Boston Red Sox in the 80′s. From the sound of the interview Boyd did with Dennis & Callahan on WEEI in Boston, it’s safe to say Boyd and Boggs didn’t share too many beers after the games.

Boyd on if he thinks Boggs is a bigot:

I don’t think it, I know it. He was raised like that. His daddy was. I’ve spoken with his dad. His dad was. The boy was raised like that. All of it ain’t his fault. Huh. All of it ain’t his fault. It’s inherited. It’s passed down. He used the word n***** every day. Every day. … Every day it come out of his mouth. Every day. Yeah, he talked about just like it wasn’t [expletive], like it was common talk. He learned that. That’s not uncommon for a kid that grew up in Florida. [Host: So Boggs said it all the time?] Every damn time he did it. That’s why there was so much controversy with me. But the bottom line was that’s just the way Wade is. I was made out to be the bad guy because I questioned that [expletive].”

During the interview Boyd also admitted to doing cocaine and smoking marijuana during his baseball career. In fact, he said he was high during the interview.
