    MILLER SHOULD BE THE BILLY WAGNER/EMBREE OF OUR BULLPEN WHEN BUCH IS READY!

    when clay bucholz is ready to pitch, i say keep wake alive as a starter for he is useless in the bullpen unless we are losing in the 5th or 6th innings. andrew miller has proven he can start over the long term or next year. all things being equal, i would have miller starting in spring training and to start the next season. i think having pap as the closer with bard and an effective miller as the setup men makes us as great as we were 2 years ago when wagner came over and in the alan embree years when we had him and and mike timlin as the setup guys we can have a combo of jenks-albers-aceves in the 6th-7th innings with leads or aceves, wheeler and albers if behind.

    dan wheeler is the perfect utility bullpen guy. this will make us unstoppable going forward with leads after 6 innings. even for next year, we move bard in as the closer and keep miller as the lefty setup guy if mutual, with jenks back to what he was signed for this year. this move gives us options for next year if we can make it work. two strikeout guys in the setup roles in addition to a power closer is the ultimate.

    Put Tim Wastefield in the DL role. Send Jenks to the buffet table. Put Doubrant in the pen in the lefty specialist/setup and meltdown longer relief role.

    Wakefield to the DL role. Miller stays in rotation for now. Doubrant to the lefty pen role.

    Moronic.  Miller is a starter, period.

    No, moronic is a poorly researched post.
    Miller is not a "starter, period".

    He has pitched in 81 ML games, and 25 of them have been in relief.
    He is primarily a starter. But if the team need is to put him in the BP, he'll go there. And this is a distinct possibility over the final 6 weeks of the season, depending...

    Miller is finally showing signs of conquering his control problems.  I would do everything to keep his routine consistent while he is enjoying success.

    Don't do anything to throw Wastefield off his rhythm. His ERA is under 5, and he has been the workhorse on this team. He is the team leader, firing up his team with all that fire in his belly.

      One of the glaring needs of this team is a lefty in the pen,I don't see Morales doing the job, Miller could be that guy. Keep him starting until the  rotation settles out because on the other hand can't see Wakefield holding up so Miller will be needed as a starter. Actually I feel strongly both ways.

    No.  The #5 should be between Lackey and Wakefield.  You can't ruin what appears to be a good thing in Miller.

    The reason Miller is with sox is because he will start. Repeat only START
