Kevin Millar and Pedro Martinez appeared drunk during their Red Sox toast (Video)

Friday was a day of celebration at Fenway Park, and Kevin Millar and Pedro Martinez took that message to heart. The former Boston World Series winners led a toast prior to the Red Sox-Yankees game on Friday, and they both seemed rather sloshed. I’m not sure how to describe the scene other than Millar reminded me of Will Ferrell jumping on stage to crash the Snoop Dogg show during “Old School.” I’m surprised Millar didn’t lead the crowd streaking down Yawkey Way and into the quad.

Below is another video, and this one culminates with Millar saying “I think we’re done … this is awkward now.”

Kevin Millar Rips on Ryan Dempster

About a week or so ago, Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster was feeling pretty loose and said he expects the Cubs to win the World Series this year. Not to put any pressure on his teammates or anything. Ordinarily I would have ripped on the guy for making such a brazen guarantee, but when you think about it, shouldn’t all players feel that way about their club? I certainly think so, therefore I laid off Dempster. The only problem was that he could have simply kept his mouth shut instead of providing more fuel to his opponent’s fire. Anyhow, enter Orioles first baseman/DH/scrub/loud mouth Kevin Millar:

“I’m guaranteeing a 2008 World Series. Everybody else is,” Millar said while standing at this locker before yesterday’s first full-squad workout.

“I’m going on the record right now. We’re going to shock the world. I don’t know who Dempster is in Chicago, but if he thinks he’s going to win the World Series, he has to come through us first.”

Millar had one more prediction: “I’m going deep off Ryan Dempster,” he said.

Well, Millar certainly isn’t good for much production these days, but at least we know the dude can still be relied upon for a great quote. Count me as a man eagerly awaiting the Cubs/Orioles interleague matchup if it happens. And let’s all remember, for all the teams predicting World Series victories, only one teams accomplishes its goal at the end of the year, 29 are disappointed. Not everyone can be right.
