Six years later, still looking for one more chance.

On July 5, 2011, the Mariners stood at 43-43. New manager Eric Wedge was steering a previously hundred-loss, veteran team to respectability; the beginning of the youth movement, Dustin Ackley and Justin Smoak and Michael Pineda flashed copious promise.

Seventeen games later, the Mariners found themselves at 43-60. Twenty-five games after that, stripped of half its rotation through deadline trades, the team sent out a 24-year-old left-hander by the name of Anthony Vasquez.

What is in Wade Miley's heart? And what does that have to do with Dallas Keuchel?

It wasn’t all that long ago that Wade Miley was one of the least interesting pitchers in baseball. On the stat sheet, his results and peripherals conspired to paint the picture of a steadfast second-division fourth starter, a sacrifice at the altar of the 162-game season. On the mound, Miley hunches into an indistinct figure, wearing an unrepentant expression; the shuffling feet of a delivery almost like an afterthought, as if an invisible pitch clock reached zero. It’s a performance designed to be forgotten, a middling opening act for a headline band that never takes the stage.

This season has marked the culmination of a life’s work of being Wade Miley, the experience and the attrition. Little, out of hand, has changed: he still throws the same four pitches—fastball-slider-curve-change—the same amount of the time at the exact same speed. He still strikes out a few batters less than average, gives up a few too many hits. He should be able to keep his head barely above water forever like this, starting the fourth game of the regular season for the 2025 equivalent of the 2017 Padres. Only, Wade Miley has stopped being boring; he’s become interesting in the worst possible way. Wade Miley can’t throw strikes. Well, he can throw strikes. But he also can’t.

For the Cubs, a door closes and a conspiracy theory opens; poetry in wartime between pitchers and mascots; and a small career lost in service.
