Heck....he could be top 10 SP if healthy. That's a big if though. I read somewhere that he chose rest and rehab versus surgery to fix a rotator cuff injury.

Amazing signing though. Even if it doesn't work, he's cheap and should definitely be OK for 2006 where the Red Sox still hold his rights.

It's not like Miller made that decision on his own. His doctor prescribed it and it's a pretty common remedy for minor rotator cuff tears that occur due to overuse. Every pitcher gets them.

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

15 Ws is a possibility if everything breaks right, but it would be unreasonable to have this as an expectation.

If Healthy?

Isnt he a FA now? Unless he ends up on a awfull team, then 15 wins is a safe bet given a fully healthy W. Miller.

he signed a dirt cheap deal with boston, leading me to believe that he isnt healthy. I would never predict 15 wins for him. We have no idea when he's gonna see the field.

If he is healthy from the start, he could win 15 behind that team. But i think that is a very big IF and to count on it happening would be very foolish.

Doh!!! I took the short bus to the Cafe today. Thnx for updateing me on his Red Sox deal ;-D .

I still stand bye my statement if healthy 15 wins.

IMHO, it will prove to be a heck of a lot better signing for the Red Sox than Matt Clement.

That dirt cheap deal makes me wonder though. What kind of option do the RedSox have on him going into 2006?

If he is fully healthy and knows it, he could be trying to set him self up for one heck of a payday then as he knows full well he isnt going to get it now.
