Andrew Miller joins Tigers

Coming off a sweep of the Red Sox, this news item of the day caught my eye- link

Andrew Miller, who could have been a Mariner as we all know, is set to join the Tigers before the September call up many had been expecting. It will be interesting to see how he fares, given the hype around his abilities.

With the Mariners in desperate need of pitching next year, seeing a kid they passed on getting called up by the team with the best record in baseball must be hard. Perhaps Miller should have been competing next year to make the roster, instead of having to give insane money to someone like Zito.

Felix. Miller. Matsuzaka.

That would have been an interesting lineup next spring.
