Boone has landed a gig as a reporter for CBSSports.com covering the World Series.
Boone, who played third base for the Florida Marlins this season and is now a free agent, was at Fenway yesterday working for CBS Sportsline and recalling his greatest moment.
Asked whether Sox fans get on him when he comes to Boston, Boone said, "I don't know. I haven't been 'jumped' so far. I got in late last night. I took a cab over here and walked down Yawkey Way and kind of turned to the side. I didn't want to find out. If they had never won here, it would probably be worse for me, but they won. That's all in the past."
Somehow I doubt that is all in the past. When the Red Sox fans quit referring to Boone as "Aaron F**king Boone", then it will have passed.
When asked about something more important than the stinking Yankees and Red Sox, he had this to say:
"I get the feeling they're at least interested, but I don't know at what level," said Boone, who hit .286 in 69 games for the Marlins this season. "I'm certainly open to it. I had a good experience."
Boone said he thought the Marlins were waiting to see medical reports on his knee and suggested he would be willing to travel to South Florida for a pre-signing exam.
If Boone is ready to go, I sure wouldn't mind having him on the team next season. The team can use the veteran leadership, not to mention an excellent infield insurance policy.
