Kevin Millwood just opted out of his minor league deal with the Yankees because it seemed obvious that wouldn’t be called up to the big club. Britt Ghiroli of now reports that the O’s are considering bringing him back.  At least if he’d like to try the minor league deal thing again.

Millwood, of course, made 31 starts for the Orioles last season and they were pretty damn awful. Reports on him this spring have been dire.  That said, the Orioles’ rotation has some holes given injuries, so if he signed and was able to look good in just one or two minor league starts, he could find himself in business.

My guess: he’s done. But I said that about Bartolo Colon, like, five different times, so what do I know?

    Millwood should take any offer he can get, even if it is another minor league deal. Based on his recent performances that’s probably the best he can hope for. In my opinion if he waits for a major league guaranteed contract he’s going to be waiting a very long time.

    I know Bartolo Colon, and you, Kevin Millwood, are no Bartolo Colon.

      Oooo-o-o-o-o-o, that’s cold. And it’s synchronicity, too. No sooner do I start thinking “And whatever happened to Dan Quayle, anyway?” I remember that there was a rerun on cable the other night of the George Carlin routine where he asks, “does he really >beep< that woman? She looks like Prince Charles!” Bet you watched it too.

      Maybe Millwood should just p

        This keyboard was a fire ant in a previous lifetime.

        >ahem< to resume….Maybe Millwood should just pack it in and open a baseball camp with Phil Hughes.

    To recycle a snarky smarta$$ comment I used before:

    Any word on whether it’s a deal to play baseball?

    This season isn’t about this season in Baltimore. It’s developing the young SPs for next season, where the Os will (hopefully) get a few key free agent additions, and beyond. If Millwood has that unstatistically validated veteran-y leadership tutor thing about him, and he signs for a very reasonable figure, and eats innings where needed while putting up replacement level numbers, it’s not necessarily a bad idea.
