From espn.com Sports Guy's column:

There were also an unfathomable number of current Boston stars and former stars spread throughout the building, including Bill Russell, Doug Flutie, Curt Schilling, John Havlicek, David Ortiz, Kevin Millar, Mike Lowell, Josh Beckett, Wes Welker, Vince Wilfork, Adalius Thomas, Richard Seymour, Ty Warren, Coco Crisp, Antoine Walker, Cedric Maxwell, Jon Lester, the Red Sox owners (John Henry, Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino), Tim Wakefield, Jacoby Ellsbury, Tedy Bruschi, Jo-Jo White, Ty Law, M.L. Carr, Tommy Heinsohn and many more.

How DARE Kevin Millar go to Boston last night for the Celtics game. I am completely and utterly abhorred that he went back to the city where he made his name and took in a basketball game and supported the city of BOSTON. Let alone he did it the day before his off day.

The worst thing is perhaps the fraternizing with other Boston players. Rubbing elbows with Lowell, Schilling, Beckett, Papi, Ellsbury and Lester? WTF is he thinking? Is he giving away our team secrets????? It really shows where his loyalty lays. I'm shocked by this behavior. Benedict Arnold has nothing on Kevin Millar.

And on top of THAT when I went to the game last Sunday vs. Boston I saw Millar in centerfield during the pregame fraternizing with Boston players! And he was dragging poor innocent Adam Jones into the fray!

Even a blind man can see that Kevin Millar still bleeds Red Sox red. He might even wear his World Series ring IN PUBLIC!!! He might even own a pair of Red Sox boxers.

This insanity needs to stop. I cannot consciously root for Kevin Millar if he goes to Boston a day ahead of THE TEAM HE PLAYS FOR to take in a basketball game in his former city of employment.

This will not stand.

Trade Millar NOW!

Interesting that Millar was the only former Red Sox player to show up. Obviously it was because the Orioles were going to be in Boston that night but there's something about fraternizing with the guys that you are going to be paid to beat two days before you play them that just seems wrong. I could see if a group of Oriole players went but this apparently was just Millar. I wonder how he got the invite...

It's interesting how Millar can just turn the switch on and off like that...

I'm not sure how he scored the invite, but thats either here nor there. JTrea, I am with you now my brother! Grab the pitchforks and torches, this menace must be stopped! Have no fear, for I shall brandish my stake and garlic! UNITE!

Kills me how Moose posts a half page JOKE and you turn it once again to Millar bashing. So let me get this straight....NOW you are pissed because he went to a Celtics NBA Finals game? A basketball game?

I saw they honored John Lester at one point for overcoming cancer and pitching a no hitter. I bet Millar had the nerve to stand up and cheer for that man! :rolleyes:

Let it go JTrea. Whether Millar is a die hard Boston fan or not, he still gives 110% to HIS team, the Baltimore Orioles. If you don't like it, I think its just too bad at this point.

I'm not bashing Millar, I'm just questioning how a player can just turn the switch on gameday from friend to foe. Beckett almost nailed Millar with a pitch intentionally in the last series, something that could have injured him, and now he's watching games with him? I just don't get this whole "sleeping with the enemy" vibe that Millar has with the Red Sox and how the Orioles let it continue...

Exchanging pleasantries before the game on gameday is one thing , but actually attending an event during the season with players you are supposed to beat two days later is another. I don't hate him for it. I just don't get it...

He's not hanging with Bin Laden; get some perspective on this thing man.

Somehow, someway, get this guy off the roster.

I never understood the love-fest with him on this board.

I agree.

I mean, he's awful. He's a complete butcher with the glove and he hasn't provided this team with ANYTHING this year as far as offense goes.

How he's stayed in the league for so long is just amazing to me.

Benedict Arnold. Kevin Millar. Is it not a coincidence that Arnold's last name stars with "Ar" and Millar's last name ends with "ar"????? McFly!?!??!?!!?

It's not a coincidence. You can even swap their first names around with their last names and have perfectly normal sounding names. Kevin Benedict and Arnold Millar. What does THAT tell you?

Last week, my kid was playing 12 U and we only had 8 players show up for the game. In our ball, you can grab a "swing" player from another team or a 10 U player to play so you dont forfeit. The other team has had issues with attendance and they had a 10 U player there for their protection who was a sibling of one of their players. They didnt need him. They lent him to us.

Now, this 10U player went on to play very well for us throughout the evening against his brother and his teammates that he had come to play with. In fact, he caught a fly ball that his brother hit to right field and of course everyone loved that, including the kid.

I dont think it is hard for kids to turn it on in similar situations, so why would it be hard for Kevin Millar to turn it on against an old team. Its a game and those that play hard, play hard regardless who they play or whether they are paid or not.

What are your opinions on Chris Paul?
