Millar Ripped Tito to the Herald's Howard Bryant Previously

"The one thing, and I thought about this a lot, and I saw Howard Bryant's (July 6 article, which quotes an unnamed player on the Red Sox who said that it was Francona's responsibility to put his own guys on the All-Star team), with Kevin Millar ripping the manager (about not selecting Matt Clement and Mike Timlin), we all know who it was, so, which I thought was uncalled for considering what the manager's done for him." -- 7.7.05, Peter Gammons, WEEI's The Big Show

Who Said It?: "When he comes into the game, people cheer him like he's the Pope?
You think they'd let Pedro get away with this? Why does he get a free pass?"
-- Anonymous Red Sox player on Curt Schilling

Tomase Fingers Millar: Schilling "complained in a Boston Globe story that he believes at least one of his teammates wants him to fail. Schilling didn't name the teammate, but it should be noted that after recording a 3-1 putout (Tuesday) night, Schilling ignored Kevin Millar's raised glove and started the traditional around-the-horn himself, firing directly to Tony Graffanino at second without acknowledging Millar." -- 9.28, John Tomase, Lawrence Eagle Tribune, echoing what the ProJo's Sean McAdam also alluded to on WEEI yesterday
