To celebrate Millar’s return, the NESN.com Question of the Day on Wednesday asked fans to vote on Millar’s most memorable moment with Boston.
Sixty percent tabbed “Cowboy Up,” Millar’s rallying cry for the 2003 Red Sox, as his most legendary moment in a Red Sox uniform. Coming in second at 24 percent was the walk that begat Dave Roberts‘ stolen base and turned 86 years of Boston history on its ear. Millar’s prescient quote before Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS, when he decreed that the Yankees better not let the Red Sox back into the series, received 16 percent of the voting.
“[We’ll] see if he brings the bottle he used to pass around the locker room before the playoff games,” cracked Tom Caron on Red Sox Final about Millar’s debut on NESN. Caron was referring to Millar’s contention that several members of the Red Sox staff did shots of Jack Daniels before going out and exorcising the Curse of the Babe once and for all.
