Margo Adams, the former Miss Stanton who filed suit against baseball star Wade Boggs after their four-year love affair broke up last year, pleaded guilty of shoplifting Monday in Newport Beach. As part of three years of unsupervised probation, Adams was ordered to pay $1,030 in fines and penalties and to put in 80 hours of community service. Because the shoplifting occurred while she was on probation for a previous conviction, Adams was sentenced to an additional 50 hours of community work.

Wade Boggs delayed ending an extramarital affair with Margo Adams despite pressure from his agent and his own feelings of frustration, the Boston Red Sox star said in a sworn declaration he recently gave in Irvine. "The feeling was totally different the last two years than the first two years," Boggs, 30, said in a deposition given May 16 as part of Margo Adams' lawsuit against him. "The only way I can describe it is like a volcano getting ready to erupt. Tones in her voice, conversations, arguments that we would have, these kinds of things just led me to believe that this was not a utopia situation."

Wade Boggs' attorney laughed at an offer by Margo Adams to drop her breach-of-contract lawsuit against the Boston Red Sox third baseman for at least $500,000. "How do you print, 'Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha,' in the paper?" responded Boggs' lawyer, Jennifer King of Tustin. "I haven't received the offer, but if as you say it is over $500,000, that is very funny. It won't be accepted by Mr. Boggs." Adams' attorney, James McGee, made the settlement offer Wednesday, one day after he said he planned to return to court and ask for "several million dollars" in damages against Boggs.

The tough questions . . . Can I have a show of hands of those who, like me, will be satisfied with whatever information is revealed in Bart Giamatti's conclusion on the Pete Rose case, and who don't particularly care if they ever see the 225-page secret report that Margo Adams' ghostwriter was trying to peddle to the media? Speaking of what's-her-name, how come we haven't heard much from her since her latest arrest on shoplifting charges? Can we be sure the mysteriously-obtained Rose report wasn't somehow shoplifted?
