The Millar effect
Millar was granted his release by the Cubs Tuesday, and ESPNDallas.com's Richard Durrett wonders if he might be a fit with the Rangers in a role similar to one Lowell could fill. Texas, of course, traded for Lowell once and is still interested enough to keep an eye on him.
Setting all that aside, Millar in Texas could bring new meaning to "Cowboy Up," no?
