I’m not sad to see Miller go. If he was the same pitcher we got in 2016, I’d feel differently. He’s not. St. Louis overpaid.
Miller was a boom or bust reliever for the Tribe. He helped pitch them to within one win of the 2016 World Series after being acquired from the Yankees in a July 31 deal. The last two years, however, the 6-7 left-hander made five trips to the disabled list with a variety of injuries and never looked like the same super reliever he was in the second half of the 2016 season.
