Guess I spoke too soon regarding Kevin Millwood's possible retirement. Today the Yankees announced that they had signed Kevin to a minor league contract. There is already speculation that he could be a part of the Evil Empire's starting rotation at some point during the season.
I have to admit, I am starting to wonder about the Yankees and their fixation with players who dominated in 2005. Sully over at Sully Baseball is the first place I heard about the theory but it sure seems to be holding up. In 2005 Millwood, shown here on card number 173 of the 2006 Fleer set, led the American League in ERA. Last season though he had a horrendous year and posted a 5.10 ERA and led the the league in losses with 16.
In spite of his signing with New York I do wish Kevin all the best. Hopefully he has a great season - just not against Texas.
