Dennis Oil Can Boyd cocaine

Dennis Oil Can Boyd cocaine
Dennis Oil Can Boyd cocaine - Ex-MLB pitcher: I was high most games, Cheating pitchers have been known to spit on baseballs or scuff them with sandpaper for more wicked curve balls. But former Boston Red Sox pitcher Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd says he had a different secret to success: hard drugs.
 The 52-year-old retiree is soon to release a book, in which he claims to have been high during “two-thirds” of the games he played.

Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd, the former Red Sox pitcher and owner of one of the best nicknames of all-time, has a tell-all book coming out in June. Yesterday, he took to the radio in Boston to discuss some of the juicy tales with WBZ’s Jon Miller, who may or may not of been wearing a banana suit.

Boyd admitted to being under the influence of cocaine two-thirds of the time he was on the mound:
“Oh yeah, at every ballpark,” he said. “There wasn’t one ballpark that I probably didn’t stay up all night, until four or five in the morning, and the same thing is still in your system. It’s not like you have time to go do it while in the game, which I had done that. Some of the best games I’ve ever, ever pitched in the major leagues I stayed up all night; I’d say two-thirds of them.”

Fantastic. The reckless baseball atmosphere of the 70s and 80s will sadly never be topped. Players these days are saddled with the reality of random drug testing, forcing them to chew sunflower seeds and attend gym openings with muscular women.

Old “Oil Can” went on to say he was never tested for drugs during his entire 10-year career. He also felt he never received the empathy and sympathy that players like Darryl Strawberry and Dwight Gooden were privy to because he was an “outspoken and a so-called ‘proud black man.’”
