    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: WOW... THEO DOES IT AGAIN, A REAL "KEEPER" IN ANDREW MILLER...... : I thought about that last week and just did not want to waste the key strokes making fun of the forgotten ring.  I'm sure the OP was front and center for them all so what's one forgotten championship?

    [QUOTE]don't get too excited, he has competed against AAA teams all season, last night (hudson and their clean up hitter the exception) as well...however, he was mid 90's on the gun with a nice changeup...it's nice he could ease into the majors against the padres...

         Amen, brother. The Padres are currently nothing more than a good triple A team. Still, the kid did okay. Let's see what he can do on the road, and against major league competition.

    Like I said yesterday, this kid is a no brainer, he is young, throws hard, left handed, he has experience and has a great defense behind him.  NOW he has actually shown what  he can do here, how can anyone dispute how good he is.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: WOW... THEO DOES IT AGAIN, A REAL "KEEPER" IN ANDREW MILLER...... : What is the point of this post?  Home grown doesn't mean they have to be on the field for you...they can be used to acquire talent.  The Sox gave up a ton of "home grown" for Gonzalez, did they not.  The debate was not about the Yankees.  The thread was about a kid who lost confidence and the Red Sox may have found something for the future.  The difference is the Nova is in the Yanks rotation.  It is an apples and oranges comparison.  Miller was selected in the draft ahead of some pretty good talent.  If you are looking to compare Theo to Cashman, have at it.  I know many Yankee fans who hate Cashman and many Sox fans who hate Theo.  The argument has been beaten to death.  You last point about know is facing who is irrelevant.  You face who you face.  Plus, unless I was dreaming, the Yanks facing the Sox was pretty challenging.  Don't try to turn this into something it isn't.  You love all things Yanks, we get it.  Can the Sox fan just enjoy that the kid had a good night without you pizzing on his campfire?  Do you need us to say that Nova is better than Miller?  OK, Nova is better than Miller.

    Admittedly, I certainly did drift from the topic at hand, turned it into a discussion which was not relevant and used the thread initiator's absurd choice of a subject line ("Theo Does It Again") to make a number of unrelated objective observations   Most of this is a reaction to broad media hyperbole rather than an individual fan's exuberance over a positive outing by a "new" addition to the roster borne of necessity.  Fans in general hate GM's because they are easy targets and when players do not perform like they should, it's more often than not the GM's fault in their shallow and uninformed opinions.  In 2005 and 2006, the Sox GM drafted in the first round pitchers named Bard and Buchholz as starting pitchers.  Bard had been drafted by the Yankees in the 20th round of the 2003 draft, chose to attend college and was ultimately drafted in the first round of the 2006 draft by the Sox.  Epstein also drafted pitchers named Craig Hansen (highest bonus signing in franchise history), Jason Place, Caleb Clay, Michael Bowden and Kris Johnson in the first round of the 2005 and 2006 drafts.  Hansen was last seen in the Pirates' minor league system.  Place is currently pitching for the Yankees' .AA team in Trenton.  Johnson is at .AAA Pawtucket sporting a 12.63 ERA and Clay has an outstanding 7.98 ERA at .AA Portland.  Bowden has had a couple of cups of coffee with the Sox, but has obviously fallen well short of what one might expect from a first round pick in 2005.
