The Boys Of Summer Are Coming! Kevin Millar had a running diary last season at redsox.com. His first installment for 2004 is chock-full of cliches and it's here:
"I remember that last year I was one of the new guys and didn't really understand what it was like to play in Boston. I was just talking to Pokey and explaining it to him. He doesn't understand what he's about to experience. It's the most unbelievable thing in baseball, to play for the Red Sox and experience that atmosphere every night. ... Even a guy like Schilling, who played in Philly and won a World Series in Arizona, never experienced an atmosphere like you have playing in Boston. ... Opening Night is almost here, and we can't wait. This is the game, man, it's going to be on ESPN. The boys of summer are getting ready to go at it."
