Millar as club house glue
I searched through our archives, but apparently we only keep about a rolling-year's worth :-( Anyway, before last season I wrote a little post on how Millar is the club house glue and that regardless of his performance he was important for keeping the team balanced. Naturally, last year was difficult because he sucked at the plate. Given Ortiz's recent comments about Manny and Millar, I am concerned. I don't really see any one else that Manny respect enough to diffuse him when he's getting wound up - and we know that he will get wound up. My fear is that unlike previous years (enter chorus stage left "Manny being Manny"), this year will actually lead to some implosion.
