Extra Bases: Millar is Excited to Be Back Tonight. Talks About Damon.

“I think the Johnny Damon situation was magnified. Everybody loves Johnny Damon. There’s not a person in this city that doesn’t appreciate what he’s done... Johnny never said no to an autograph. He was a phenomenal teammate. He played hurt. With a superstar like that, everybody says ‘let’s boo him.’ Everybody loves Johnny Damon. If you don’t like him, you got problems.” -- 5.5.06, Kevin Millar on Former Face of the Red Sox Johnny Damon

He's One of a Kind

During Times Like These, We're Missing Millar More Than Ever
(His Off-Field Antics Of Course. On-Field? Not So Much.)

''These were the greatest three years of my entire life playing baseball. Playing for the Red Sox, playing for Boston, that city, those fans. And that's 100 percent from my heart.

''It's sad, of course. I don't think there is anyone that did more laughing, more winning, more competing than this team, and who would believe that it is over.

''I don't think people will realize until these guys are gone what they were like, a good group from 1-to-25 that knew how to win on a daily basis." -- 12.8.05, former Red Sox first baseman and World Series Champion Kevin Millar
