Has Millar Gone Too Far?
The Cowboy's New 2005 Team Theme Doesn't Exactly Embrace a Supportive Red Sox Nation
"If it's early September, it must be time for Kevin Millar to bring out this year's edition of the team unity T-shirt. The words on the front of the black T-shirt aren't entirely printable, but the words on the back read: '2005 Sox - All We Have Is Each Other.'"
"'The last four, five weeks, that's when you come together as a unit, as a team,' Millar said. 'It's Cowboying Up time. We're starting to come together. We had a tough spell there in Kansas City, going 4-6 on the road trip, but back here we're starting to turn it on.'"

Your Turn: What Should Be the Theme for the 2005 Team?
"The people who feel betrayed are the ones who stood behind him (Millar) when he was doing badly. He last week said on NESN we were a 10,000,000 member family and no one should boo."
"This week he said #@&! everyone but the 25-40 people on the roster with him. He cut his family down by almost 9,999,960. It was childish, not well thought out, and will probably start the booing again. And it just might have ended his career chances in Boston. These preppie owners won't want part of this kind of mess."

"It is the fans who are here year after year, generation after generation. The fans will still be here giving their hearts to the Red Sox long after everyone on this roster is long gone. It's the fans who have made Boston the best baseball town in the country. It's the fans who have created this incredible love affair with the Red Sox. It's the fans who these players should be eternally grateful to.
Let them put that on a T-shirt, something like '2005 Sox -- We're All In This Together.'
It might not be as catchy.
But it would be a lot closer to the truth."
