    If Miller can stabilize as a guy who can stay healthy, usually give you 6 innings and pitch to an ERA of 4.50 or less, then he can absolutely be a serviceable back of the rotation starter for the Sox.  And guys like that can be very valuable over the long haul.

    Several very good posts.   Potsntial is there.  Sox need to be patient with him and he needs to be able to take it easy on hi...  I was gonna say the wrong thing.  Be willing to focus and overcome the tough situations that the umps might get get him into, the tough situations that his fielders get him into and the tough situations he walks into .... then he'll become the great - or at least very good - pitcher he has the potential to be.

    And Theo will have the pleasure of watching a nugget turn golden ... especially if he signs with Scott Boras ....

    Personally, I think he's gonna be a huge asset ... and has already helped make the difference between 1st place and 2nd ....

    I think that if Miller were averaging only 3 walks per game, the tone of this discussion would be a lot more positive.  We'd be a lot more upset today if he'd given up 6 runs, 10 hits, and no walks.

    Honestly, I'd rather have a guy whose biggest weakness is walks, not earned runs or a lot of hits.  So if Miller can trim down the walks, he's going to have a legit career.  But definitely still a work in progress.

    at UNC he walked just under 5 per 9 in his 1st 2 years and 3 per 9 in his dominant 3rd year.

    in 319 MLB innings it's 5.35/9
    in 300 minor league innings its a touch under 5 per 9.

    he's gonna walk 5 per 9 is my take unless Curt Young can find the mechanical flaw that has been causing this for the last 8 years.  but he's pretty hard to hit.
