Millar Finds Groove and AL Player of the Week
It was no secret that Millar was playing like a Japanese ball player for almost a year now.
I got out of my coma," Millar said. "I mean, I was in a coma for 2 1/2 months."Um, more like a year KFC boy, but it appears that a change in his stance has been a revitalization tonic.
I just went into the cages and opened my stance up and it's allowed me to throw my top hand, because I'm a pull hitter and I just wasn't bringing that top hand through,' so opening my stance up really has helped out. [Curt] Schilling told me, '[Cal] Ripken played 3,000 games. He had 20 different stances, so it's time for you to make an adjustment.' So I did and it worked."The change in stance has produced sexy results on and off the field. This week (as predicted by The Boston Blogger)Millar was named AL Player of the week... well, co-player of the week with Tejada.
That's awesome," said Millar. "Me and Tejada, wow. I'm not a good enough player to be in there."You are right again Kevin.
