Wade Miller: What type of year?

Postby denvermax » Mon Jan 31, 2005 3:21 pm

How does everyone here think Wade Miller will do this season after joining the Red Sox? Does he have a rotation spot, is he healthy, will he put up big numbers?

I dont have insight into if he is healthy or not - however I can give a baseline projection if he is healthy:

200IP - 15 W - 160Ks - 3.8 ERA - 1.34 WHIP

One can pesumably expect a slight increase in %s and decrease in Ks due to the league switch.

I've seen some places project him as a reliever for the Sox.

I believe he will be ready to go for the start of the season and I expect at least this good of numbers and maybe even a couple more wins.

A very high risk, high reward player.

If he is healthy (which I seriously doubt), he should at least be the No. 3 in the Sox starting rotation. No way I see him being used as a MR. That would be crazy.

In the unlikely scenario he does stay healthy all year then 16-17 wins, 170k's and a sub ERA of 4.00 would not be unexpected.

To me, what's more likely is starting only a handful of games all season.

If you're drafting right now or if he pitches in ST then he is definitely worth taking a flyer on. If we don't see him before the season starts, in a normal sized league, I wouldn't waste a roster spot on him.

Exactly what I think. If he can stay healthy, he should be good for 15 wins and an ERA below 4.00.
