In my case I'm going to touch on each of our resident milluears. 1) First up on the plate is the Sox signing last week of Wade Miller. Wow, I truly do think that this has the potential to be the biggest signing of the off-season for the Sox. If he can bounce back from his rotator cuff injury then I can see this being huge. Wade was, and had the potential to be, one of the top tier pitchers in the league. From 2001-2003 he won a total of 45 games, and even with a bum shoulder last year he had a .500 record and a 3.35 ERA. I see him slated as our three or four starter to start the year, however, look out for him to be our #2 man after the All*Star break. You heard it here first people, remember that. The most beautiful thing about this is this is a low cost, high reward risk, that if it pans out, makes our pitching very dangerous. With a base salary of $1.5 million (incentives push can push it to $4.5 million) this may end up being more of a steal then Mantei. The following is taken from ESPN.com's 2002 Year in Review, "Roy Oswalt and Wade Miller proved to be as good as any 1-2 combination in the game this side of Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling. Oswalt (19-9, 3.01 ERA) and Miller (15-4, 3.28) combined to go 34-13, while putting together nine and 12-game winning streaks, respectively." 2) Onto my main man Bill "The Professional Hitter" Mueller. When not playing a hot third base, winning batting titles, or getting clutch hit after clutch hit against the Yankees, Bill apparently like to sign autographs. My beautiful and talented girlfriend, we'll call her Miss Digital, won me an autographed Bill Mueller ball at an auction for X-Mas. Now that's what I call a present. He's one of my favorite Sox and has won (and lost, but not often) some pretty good bets for me against my roommates. Best present of the year. 3) Next on the plate is Kevin "I never don't have an opinion and am the streakiest hitter since Mike Greenwell" Millar. Just so you know, I have this strange love hat relationship with Millar. At times he swings the bat like a golden god, and at other times he swings the bat like it's a piano leg. His talking can be very amusing, but at times I'd love to stuff a bag of pine tar in it. Again I fo like the guy a lot, but at times he can be too much. I equate him with the frind you really like and have fond memories of, you just need to take him in small doses. Like I said, it's a Love/Hate thing. I personally think that Kevin's seen his last days in a Sox uniform. Again, I was guaranteeing people Pedro would be with us next year so take it as you will. I really do think that Theo & Co. are going to try and keep a good balance of defense and power. So you may very well see Minky starting on opening day. Either way it's been stated that Sox Nation should know by mid-January so this very well be the last big "drama we see this off-season. I could argue why should keep or let go of either, however, I'm saying I'd take Kentucky Fried Kevin, but I think we're keeping the Minkster. Man, I should go into politics.
