Re: At 49, "Oil Can" Boyd would like to try a comeback
Kudos to him for giving it a try.
I doubt it'll work out though. The problem with being 49 yrs old isn't how you look in a 15 min workout or even how you do the first month. The problem with that age is that we don't recover as quickly and you're much more injury prone. Can he withstand the rigors of a 162 game season? I remember when Jim Palmer, already a member of the Hall of Fame, tried a comeback and he did pretty well in Grapefruit League play until he pulled a muscle in his leg. He then saw how slowly he recovered and he called off his comeback. It had little to do with his performance on the field. He questioned whether his body could do it for 162 game season
