In 2011, Kevin Millwood, zillionaire superstar, came to our little ballpark. He started 13 games and went 5-1 with a 4.28 ERA. I see he struck out 66 and walked 25, so that was pretty good. It was a very exciting time for me.
I went back in my archives and noticed that Millwood tossed a 102 pitch game v Buffalo in July 2011. Opposing pitcher was the equally veteran Miguel Batista. Know who else pitched? Dale Thayer and Gustavo Chacin. What the fuck. The Millwood game summaries are terrific and wicked funny, if I say so myself.
Last thing: Millwood participated in PawSox bowling. I would also like to point out that on Poster Night, Mill the Thrill was friendly and cordial and actively engaged with the fans. SO MUCH CLASS. And yet scrubs like Billy Buckner can't be bothered.
