See You, Space Cowboy

I know this blog has said some terrible things about Kevin Millar over the past year, but this article about the former Boston first baseman and cheerleader’s reaction to the inevitability of his free agent status still tugs on the heart strings. It’s times like this, with the future exciting but uncertain and the past a glorious memory, that I really miss the 2004 team and the departure of Millar just underscores what’s gone. I hope I can fall in love with the Red Sox teams of the future as much as I did those 25 guys from a year ago, but for now, hats off to you, cowboy. Good luck in the future.
