Kevin Millar’s younger brother a finalist for next Red Sox PA announcer

As John Cleats once penned…

“My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains
My sense, as though of heeeemlock I had drunk”

Kevin Millar, who last played Major League Baseball as a first baseman for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2009, might see his younger brother take over the reigns as PA announcer for the Boston Red Sox.

Millar, now an analyst with MLB Network, has a younger brother, Jensen, who is one of the finalists to replace the late Carl Beane, who was killed in a car accident in May 2012. Jensen’s connection to his brother no doubt helps his situation; Kevin played for the Red Sox from 2003-05 and was a part of the team during their historic run to a World Series championship in ’04.

The Sox tweeted a pic of Jensen “holding down the PA mic” at Boston’s spring training game on Wednesday in Ft. Myers, Fla against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Maureen Mullen, Red Sox beat reporter for, also took to Twitter to shed some light on Jensen and his prospect as Boston’s next voice.

He did a nice job. He wasn't at like his brother, pretty understated. Got a laugh in the ninth when he announced that number 93 had entered the game as a pinch runner but didn't give a name.

I've read that the pay is utterly trivial, like $30-50 per game. Is that the standard for MLB?

On the other hand, you get free tickets to every game.

As I recall, Minor League Guy is Oscar Tavares, now one of the top prospects in baseball.

#2, the Lucchino/Werner management of the various off field apparatuses of the Red Sox is astoundingly cheap. I remember seeing or hearing the pay that Tina Cervasio got for doing in game interviews etc and being shocked at how low it was.

Lou Piniella doing Yankee game the other day..."That guy at short has a really good arm. Watch his throw over to that guy at 1B" And these were the Yankee players. So frickin' embarrassing.

Not as bad as poor Wally Szcerbiak doing NCAA basketball - this guy actually made an NBA All-Star team.
