Millwood must turn it around tonight

There's a good column in the Inquirer today challenging Kevin Millwood to earn his keep. He's making $11M this season, making him the highest-paid starter in Phillies history since Kevin Millwood last season. He hasn't won a game in 7 starts, and with Padilla and Wolf on the mend, his turn in the rotation is even more important.

It seems like every game, L.A. points out flaws in his mechanics, and the flaws are always different. And his stamina is quite troubling; he has just enough to get you to the 5th or 6th, then there's a sharp drop and he starts hanging pitches.

Montreal is the place to straighten it out. Let's hope he delivers.
