Cubs sign Kevin Millar to minor league deal

So says ESPN's Jerry Crasnick via Twitter. Millar will battle Chad Tracy for a potential spot on the bench. The 38-year-old batted .223 with seven home runs and 29 RBI in 251 at-bats last season with the Blue Jays.

Reason I hope he doesn't make the team: He hasn't batted above .254 since 2006.

Reason I hope he does make the team: So we can pronounce his name with a Boston accent, as Red Sawx fans did when he played in Boston from 2003-2005. As in: "Come on Millaah! Pahk one in the bleachers! Hit it wicked faah!"
