Berkman still complimentary of Mills

Well, this is nice:

“For me the toughest thing about (the slump) is it reflects poorly on (Mills), and that couldn't be further from the truth. He's been great and needs to be here for a long time. He's a great communicator and a very upbeat guy. But the best thing for me is I feel like he's here for our benefit, where in the past you felt maybe you were here for the benefit of the coaching staff. It's a shame that we as players haven't played to our capabilities to reward them for their effort."

We get it. Coop couldn't communicate. Mills can. No need to keep bringing it up. But he is right.
