    Kevin Millar and Orioles getting close to contract deal

    How many first basemen does Baltimore need?


    In a continuing effort to fill out their 25-man roster, the Baltimore Orioles are in escalating discussions with former Boston Red Sox first baseman Kevin Millar on a one-year deal.

    Millar, 34, had expressed interest in joining the Orioles for much of the winter, according to one industry source, but talks heated up in the past week and he could be nearing an agreement soon.

    Orioles vice president Jim Duquette confirmed that the team has spoken with representatives of Millar and former Texas outfielder Richard Hidalgo in their search for a veteran major leaguer. Although nothing has advanced with Hidalgo recently, Duquette said negotiations with Millar "have progressed." He wouldn't comment on specifics.

    Millar became a cult hero in Boston with his "Cowboy Up" catch phrase and solid play in three years with the Red Sox.

    I liked Millar when he was a bargain basement thumper. He's now just a streaky guy who can't hit well enough to be a starter and can't play defense enough to be an ideal reserve.

    And mark my words, he'll whine if he's on the bench.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
