Orioles first baseman Kevin Millar still is showing off the silver Porsche his wife gave him for Christmas. He says that he has gotten it up to 140 mph, but I can't really understand why anyone would pay six figures for a car that fast in a country where the highest legal speed limit is 80 mph. I'll defer to comedian Jay Leno, an avid car collector who asked and answered a similar question during one of his Tonight Show monologues: "It's like buying a...

On the Orioles' everyday first baseman I think [Aubrey] Huff should play every day and at mostly one spot. If he is decent with the glove at first base, why not play him there every day?

They might as well see if he can handle it.

Millar perfect fit for mediocre O's Peter Schmuck's column ("For Millar, it would be hair today, win tomorrow," Monday) indirectly points out exactly why the Orioles have had nine straight losing seasons. Kevin Millar's argument - let players grow facial hair and they will have a shot at a winning season - is not only absurd, but it's also a bit embarrassing that he's considered a leader of this team. The reason the Orioles have had nine straight losing seasons is that they continue to sign and give ample playing time to mediocre players like Millar.
