2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)why do the marlins think it is better for andrew miller to get rocked in the majors rather than work on comand in the minors?
(tycobb from ga)
Well, I didn't mind the decision to start him up here, but it's about time for him to go back down. The Marlins probably have Wes Obermueller or someone of that ilk who can start.

Wouldn't you love to own the Marlins? Or GM them? You can do ANYTHING, and there's no fan base to alienate! It seems like this would be a great team to try all kinds of fun strategies with. (Joe Sheehan)
