We went through a little stretch and we were 4 ½ up and now we're a half-game out and we lost two out of three in Tampa Bay. The only choice we have is to come fired up in Baltimore this weekend and to come with a positive attitude. We do that as a team better than anybody. We know how to shower off the bad games. We know how to shower off the negative stuff that's written about us, that's talked about us, better than any other team.
These next 10 days, we have that choice, to come out positive, or to feel sorry for ourselves because we're a little banged up and guys are going through some tough injuries and guys are battling with tough years statistically. We just have to bring that positive energy to this club the next 10 days.
Personally, I think that Millar should consider writing Dear Abby instead of Dear Diary. In any event, get ready for the cries of this "injury excuse" from RSN if they lose this year.
Millar is using it above. And, I've seen others in RSN start to throw it around lately as well.
Gee, I guess that Wright, Brown, Mussina, Pavano, Johnson, Williams, Sheffield, Giambi, Jeter, Sturtze, and Gordon were just the pictures of health all season and that's why the Yankees are in first today, huh?

I really can't explain why but it just pisses me off when a guy that sucks has the biggest mouth on the team. Obviously, Millar seems to be the spokesman for the Sox (although Schilling and Damon for that matter can't seem to say no to a mic) and I just thought it was annoying when Freddie Mitchell had an even bigger mouth than T.O. around the Super Bowl last year. SHUT UP! YOU SUCK!

I've always felt that he's just angling himself for a job on Baseball Tonight because he knows his career is just about done.

Maybe he should do a 900 number psychic line...he sure nailed that A-Rod prediction.

Compared to the excuses we will have to suffer through if the Yanks don't make it?
Give me a break, I can hear them now.

I think you'll find this place more to your liking:

Brad, if the Yankees don't make it, there's only one "excuse" - they didn't play well enough for the whole season to win it. I think most Yankees fans would be willing to sign off on that and not look for something else.
