For Sale: Wade Boggs’ Fishing Boat

Wade Boggs Told Charlie Day He Drank 107 Beers In One Day (Video)

Beer-drinking ghost of Wade Boggs to appear on 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'

Hall-of-Fame slugger Wade Boggs also has shrine-worthy beer drinking abilities, so go the tales about Boggs' affinity and capacity for throwing back Miller Lites on cross-country flights during his playing days.

No Number 21 For Porcello—Because of Roger?

Clemens And BoggsFor some unknown reason, the Red Sox have not retired Wade Boggs' uniform number 26. And yet, it appears that they are protecting the uniform number 21 of Roger Clemens—since no one has worn it since his departure in 1996. Now, reportedly, Rick Porcello was denied number 21 when he joined the club. So, a guy who is almost universally scorned for suspected PED...
