Boyle has not been asked to waive his no-trade clause

Dan Boyle’s name is being churned out in the rumor mill so often right now, the frenzied pace is difficult to keep up with.
Despite reports that have surfaced that Boyle has been asked by the team to waive his no-trade clause, a team source says those reports are not true.
Boyle could not immediately be reached for comment, but he stated earlier on Wednesday that he had no intention of waiving his no-trade clause.
“As I stand here right now, I want to be in Tampa,’’ Boyle said. “I don’t have any intention of waving my no-trade clause as I sit here right now.’‘
Trade rumors involving Boyle has been most often linked to Ottawa, which is his hometown. He didn’t want to talk specifics Thursday morning about whether he had been approached at all about his no-trade clause, but after recently getting married to a woman from Tampa and purchasing land in the area to build a home, Boyle is planning on living in the area for the long term.
Things will continue to develop as the day goes on.
