We've all seen once-great vets use expansion as a life-support system for their wallets ( Dale Murphy, Rockies), and' it's not pretty. Which doesn't mean Wade Boggs, 39, can't find his lifetime .331 stroke one last time. Platooning for the Yankees in '97, Boggs hit .292, not bad for a guy who was supposed to be washed up. If the future Hall-of-Famer gets 160 hits this season, he'll be 40 short of 3,000 for his career. Those hits won't generate many wins, but they will force the Devil Rays to bring him back so they can cash in on his pursuit of 3,000—which will finally give their fans something worth cheering for.
