No hard feelings from Kevin Millwood

5/19/2010

ARLINGTON -- Last December, the Rangers traded RHP Kevin Millwood to the Orioles for RHP Chris Ray.

Millwood returns to the place he called home for four seasons with the Orioles. He won't pitch in this series. He still has a home here. His kids, however, go to school in Georgia, and he has no hard feelings about the trade.

"No, it’s a business," said Millwood, who went 48-46 with the Rangers with four Opening Day starts. "The game is a business. Nothing I can do about it, no reason to whine about it. I just move on and go on about my business."

Millwood said he enjoyed his time in Texas and is getting used to life in Charm City. He joked about learning a lot about America because of how close Baltimore is to Washington, D.C.

This season, Millwood is 0-4 with a 3.65 ERA in nine starts. In his last four starts he's gone into the seventh inning, yet is still winless for the Orioles (13-27).

"There's nothing I can do about it," Millwood said of his 2010 stats. "All I can do is pitch, and whatever happens, happens. I think I've done a good job of keeping us in ballgames."
