...but we got Millar. The Chunichi Dragons took a buyout from the Marlins, who turned around and sold him to the Red Sox for probably about the same amount. Think this makes a significant impact on the team?

Definitely. I've been hoping for this for weeks. Just think of it: Instead of Tony Clark and Brian Daubach at first, we're going to have a consistent .300 hitter in Kevin Millar. And I can't help but think that his RBI total this year will beat last year's 57, as he will likely be batting behind Manny or Trot Nixon. The weakest offensive link on the team will be at DH, with Jeremy Giambi or David Ortiz, and those guy are no slouches.

Its such a good deal, Monday has been declared a Holiday to celebrate the acquisition of Millar.
Now, back to the realm of sanity: He was a platoon player for the Marlins, nothing to go crazy about.
Going into last season, Clark was expected to go for at least .260 25 80, so my expectations for Millar are actually below the ones I had for Clark.
And I still worry about the first time Manny plays left field at home this year and hears voices coming from atop the Wall. Manny might think God is talking to him, and that concerns me.

Did you forget about Jason ".392 SLG" Varitek? Maybe a year post-surgery will increase his strength, but I'd still wager he'll end the season with the worst OPS of any regular by far.

I also like the Millar acquisition. He was injured last year, but he still did OK.

He is a consistant .300 hitter with RBIs. He is likable in the clubhouse. He can play at 3rd and other infield positions. One year for Florida he played games at 6 positions including catcher. Very versitile. If they trade Shea to the Mets, he could help out at 3rd base.

Yes, I meant Red Sox regular. But overall, I hope Greg Vaughan gets a chance to follow up on the stunning 601 OPS he delivered last year.

I've been reading Tim Kurkjian's book "Is this a great game or what?" and I read something I think most sports fans will appreciate. In the 1979 amateur baseball draft, Don Mattingly was taken in the 19th round. Drafted ahead of him that year?...
