Last month Sherman reported that Millwood rejected a minor-league contract offer from the Yankees, which was exceptionally … well, let’s say “bold” for a 36-year-old who went 4-16 with a 5.10 ERA last season and remains unsigned two weeks before Opening Day.
It’d be sort of tough to blame Millwood too much for seeking a guaranteed deal when the offseason began, as he earned $12 million last season and hasn’t had a salary under $7 million since 2002, but at this point what is he really holding out for? A guaranteed spot in the rotation for a 36-year-old who stunk last year and will be way behind everyone else even if he reports to spring training immediately? A few extra dollars in potential incentives he probably won’t reach and would barely make a dent in his career earnings anyway?
Incidentally, Millwood’s agent is … Scott Boras.
