Boyle, who turns 38 on Saturday, turned down more lucrative offers with longer terms to sign with the Rangers. “That’s where I wanted to go,  that’s the simplest way I can put it,” Boyle said. “Once I found I was done in San Jose, that was a team I was always curious about. I played in Florida and California,  two...
