To me the whole things smells like Rob Nen circa 2003 and 2004. I would not be shocked if he never makes it back.

That said, if you play with in league with a decent amount of DL slots (such as I do), why not take a flyer on him off the WW and hold on to him until you need the DL slot for someone more valuable.

Last year he proved that there is something seriously wrong with him.

I can't believe people are still holding out hope that he will come back and be the same again. It ain't happening in 2006 that is for sure.

That's why I posted the question...I haven't heard anything about him since the middle of last year. I didn't know the extent of his injury or his progress and whether he had surgery or not. I was just curious if anyone thought he'd actually make a roster/rotation this year.

Sad but true, but Miller's numbers before '04 were actually as good or better than Wood's. In my keeper leagues Miller would be a classic $1 end game pickup that you reserve after the first week and pick up a replacement pitcher for. Then you hope he's healthy by the end of the season and looks good for '07. However, since he didn't sign for more than one year and my leagues are NL only, I don't think I would bother taking a chance on him.

I'm surprised the Cubs didn't give him a Williamson or Dempster contract so they could benefit in the 2nd year of the deal.

It's strange that the Cubs would sign him without a club option for 07. Isn't that what they did with Dempster?

Zambrano has thrown about 120 pitches per game the last 3 years, Maddux is 50, Prior's always hurt, Wood is a chinadoll and penciled to start in the bullpen right now, they don't like Williams, Baker wouldn't give Rusch the 5th spot last year ....

I'll bet Miller's in the rotation by July.
