    Who didn’t see this in Millar’s future, back when he was a player with the Sox? I can see him on WEEI all the time, as well. I’m sure he’ll be great on the panel. Unlike Ken Macha, who looked like he was doing a hostage video, Millar is comfortable in front of a microphone.

      The only thing I miss about Ken Macha is Jerry Remy calling him Ken Mach-er.

    Great as in comfortable in front of the mic? Maybe

    Great as insightful and adding something to the discussion? I'll be stunned.

    I have yet to see Kevin Millar be it pre-game or post game announcing for the Red Sox!
    The last time I saw him he was sitting in a seat near the dugout talking with David Ortiz.
    Tell me when he can be seen!
