Kevin Millar batting cleanup. Vernon Wells batting 5th. Cito Gaston has lost his God damn mind.
That's exactly the type of package Ricciardi is looking for...

Forget about heckling Millar, it's Cito who needs a tongue lashing.
That's about right, Steve. Here's Millar July numbers: .172 AVG, .250 OBP, .526 OPS. He is completely useless.
I'm kind of disappointed David Dellucci isn't playing. He truly belongs in this shittacular lineup.
Remember when Millar hit that grand slam, back in Minnesota? I think that was the series in which Travis Snider, THE GREAT BIG GIANT PASTY WHITE HOPE (terminology h/t: Tao of Stieb) went yard twice in one game. Those were good times.
Yeah, J.P. said as much in the Rome interview. It means Doc must go via trade. We cannot let him walk like Burnett did. (And I think Joanna hates me.)
Channel 399. Rogers Preview Channel, FTW.
And to think, Randy Ruiz is in the fucking minors. Is it too early to start drinking?
As far as channels go, yes, it is quite amazing.
Here's hoping one of these teams gets desperate re: Doc.
It's crazy. You've got your star pitcher, the face of the franchise, telling you he's leaving, almost 100%, in a year and a half. That's got to make the clubhouse a lovely place to be. This is not how I envisioned it would go down.
And all this time, Andrew, you thought that wasn't possible.
Your starting lineups are below. I suggest you do not look at them. Millar's in the 4-spot, Vernon right behind him.
Those numbers are fantastic. How must Ruiz feel, seeing shitbags Dellucci and Millar up here, while he rips apart the PCL?
Things I didn't know until right now: Marco Scutaro was once a Cleveland Indians prospect.
Millar's a DELIGHT in the clubhouse. Just delightful.
David Huff is a prime candidate to completely shut down the Blue Jays.
Travis Snider cannot return north soon enough.
