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.”
