Wade Miller Update?

Postby West Coast Fan » Tue Jul 06, 2004 3:34 pm

So here's one of the news quips
Jul 3 Alyson Footer, of Astros.MLB.com, reports Houston Astros SP Wade Miller (shoulder) has a fray in his right rotator cuff. Astros GM Gerry Hunsicker said the right-hander would most likely miss a month of games.

A month off! My teams are getting DL'd all over the place. Whether it's Casey and Miller, Hudson and Miller, Wood and Miller or Beckett and Miller, my teams are getting dinged at the wrong time. I'm tempted to drop Miller becuase he'll be out for a month and may not be in good shape anyway when he returns.

Any thoughts about whether two months of Miller is worth the wait, or should I play the waiver wires and pick the hot arms for some wins?

What are others doing? :-?

I've thought about dropping Miller also but he is supposed to start throwing in two weeks. I will wait until then and see how that goes.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

i would hold on to miller until he comes back since he is notoriously known as a 2nd half pitcher.....
