I still like Miller more, especially considering the team that drafted him. The Tigers have shown they can develope pitching and are a good ball club, the Royals well haven't shown much of anything. While Miller's change might not be as developed as you would like, he has an excellent 2 seam FB that is very good at getting ground balls and can act like an off-speed pitch. Add to that he is a lefty that throws low to mid 90's and has an amazing slider, it's hard for me to go against that.
I agree completely!!!
The Royals mishandle prospects constantly and more than likely will take another couple years to get things straightened out. Even if Hochevar reaches the majors fairly quickly and dominates, he probably won't have the greatest squad behind him.
