    Miller's one-hitter

     It's surprising that, with all of his pitches, Miller has only given up one hit.

    Five amazing innings.  Three walks in the first or second, bases loaded with one out, and he gets the ever popular GIDP.  Then another walk or two, but slowly, surely gets his control back.  He ended up throwing fewer pitches that Arrieta of the Orioles for the first five innings.  And fewer runs, of course.

    So, are you going to change the thread title and your post with each hit he gives up?  As a Red Sox fan, I hope you're done for the day with your revisions.

    Re: Miller's one-hitter

    the Sox may.....I say MAY, lose this one because of Francona's
    absolute refusal to play smart small ball, or percentage baseball.
    It's a blazing hot day out there, and Arrieta has thrown about
    90 or more pitches. Reddick on first, no one out. Crawford
    is swinging away. Why not lay one down and see if they can
    draw an errant throw from Arrieta or the catcher. They can
    advance a runner { Reddick } to scoring position. But..no
    no, no. Swing away , Carl. So...he wildly strikes out, and
    draws an interference call. TWO OUTS, no rally...and
    Francona blows at least a chance to manufacture a rally.
    2-0 is not a big lead. It's the sixth inning, and you need
    insurance.

    I can't help but think Varitek has had a positive effect on Miller today.

    Re: Miller's one-hitter

    Despite what the diehard Sox fans may think....that Francona
    walks on water, you have to wonder why he plays Navarro
    The guy has a nice arm, fields well...but is a disaster at the
    plate. He swings like a rusty gate and is a rally killer. What's
    the matter with Iglesias...let him at least try. How about
    Lowrie ?? I know he's injured, but anyone gotta be better
    than Navarro.

    perhaps MILLER could become the left-handed DICE-K SOX fans have been waiting for.

    happy, but lets face facts. It was the Orioles. Me? I don't want Miller starting a playoff game.
    Interesting decision when health returns to the rotation in the next week or two. Is Miller the #5 or BPen? Do you want Miller coming into a game with men on base?

    Wow...One week ago people wanted him out of the rotation.  One start later, Cy Young.  I think the pendulum swings too far both ways, no?

    Coaching staff somehow needs to get his command in place. With that he would be fine as a #5 starter or solid long RP. If he keeps walking batters at this pace he won't be around too long.

    Re: Miller's one-hitter

    miller is never going to be considered along with cy young, but if nothing else the sox are now 5-1 in his six starts since being called up from pawtucket.

    he is not great, has a lot of improving to do but wouldn't we want to have the sox win 5 of every 6 each guy starts?

    i am concerned about how he can so quickly seem to lose everything at any particular time although i do like that he seems to be able to bounce back most of the time after hitting the control pot hole.

    he had the terrible inning today, but limited the damage and then was much more in control for the rest of his outing with far more balls being much closer to the strike zone.

    almost wonder if he doesn't yet trust his stuff, tries to over-throw and nit pick too often.
