The Orioles signed former Red Sox first baseman/outfielder/double play grounder into Kevin Millar. Millar was best known for his clubhouse value and not his bat, or glove. Millar started off in Boston in 2003 and played very well, knocking in 96 runs. In 2004, he knocked in only 74 but he did hit .297. Then last year, he was most unimpressive. Nine homeruns, 50 RBI and a .272 average in far too much playing time. Now, he's gone and will play first base for Baltimore. I can't say I will shed a tear. However, he is another member of the 2004 Championship team that will be leaving and considering how many members of that team have left, it is somewhat sad.
