Dennis Oil Can Boyd Cocaine

Dennis Oil Can Boyd Cocaine, Former Red Sox pitcher Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd says he probably pitched under the influence of cocaine “at every ballpark” during his 10-year career.
“There wasn’t one ballpark that I probably didn’t stay up all night, until 4 or 5 in the morning, and the same thing is in your system,” Boyd said in an interview with Jon Miller of WBZ radio in Boston. “It ain’t like you had time to go and do it while you were in the game, which I have (done) that.”
Boyd was 78-77 with a 4.04 ERA in his career. In eight seasons with the Red Sox, from 1982-89, he was 60-56.
“Some of the best games that I’ve ever, ever pitched in the major leagues, I stayed up all night. I’d say two-thirds of them,” he said Wednesday, “and if I had went to bed, I would have won 150 ballgames in the time span that I played and … I felt like my career was cut short for a lot of reasons.”
One of them, he said, was bigotry.
Boyd said he “wasn’t doing anything that hundreds of ballplayers weren’t doing at the time, because that’s how I learned it, and I just caught the deep end of it. And the reason, too, also, that I caught the deep end of it (is) I’m black, and the bottom line was that the game carries a lot of bigotry and that was just an easy way for them to do it.”
