Millar to sign w/ O's

One year deal according to orioles.com. This basically ends Matos' chances in baltimore. He should rotate w/ Conine between 1B and LF.

I get to see Millar play at Fenway, but not with the Red Sox.
Life is good ;-D

Millar is the streakiest hitter I have seen. He will go 0-50 then hit two homeruns against the Yankees.

I am so happy that we have added yet another useless 1B/DH/OF to the Oriole roster.

GTWMA, you were the first person I thought of when I read this.

Your quote above is pretty close to what I thought you would have to say about it too.

For what it's worth, I agree.

It's pure hell being an Oriole fan these past 8 years, even more so because I was telling people in 1995/6 that the Orioles were destroying any hope that they'd be competitive for at least the next decade. And they just keep making the same mistakes over and over and over and over again. Millar's not bad, but it's not like he's going to make them any better this year and he's certainly not part of any Oriole team that will be competing for the playoffs in the future.

Yeah, you'd have thought he could have at least made the jump to "Nixsuck", which is actually a better fit than "Bellsuck".... Perhaps "Twat Nixon" would have been the best of them all?

NOTE: I'm not sure if I'm allowed to use that word, so if any mod sees this and disapproves, please delete. :-)
