Gregor @ DH:

Trying to catch on with the Sox as a reserve outfielder, Milledge is already impressed with the way Guillen goes about his business.

“I think he’s a real, real honest guy,” said Milledge, a nonroster invitee. “He’s not afraid to express his feelings and he reminds me of my dad a lot. Don’t take anything for granted.”

Guillen has always taken pride in the way he treats every player the same, and Milledge has fallen right into line.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re the highest-paid player or a nonroster invitee,” Milledge said. “Black, white, Latin, it doesn’t matter. He treats everybody the same and what you see is what you get. Just play the game hard, respect the game and you won’t have any problems.”


  1. I like milledge, he would be a great 4th outfielder! he’s got decent speed off the bench, and a decent bat. with dunn and konerko in the lineup, we need speed off the bench in the ninth with the game on the line. he fits the bill better than de aza, lillybridge or any other in the hunt for the spot because of his professional experience. I think he could break out and have a great season with a winning team.

    • I like milledge too! I’d love for him to have a breakout season with the Sox. that would be great! and like you say, I don’t see how de aza or lillibridge can be better solutions.
