Braves Pulling Ahead In Heyward for Miller Trade

I did it. You probably did too. I tuned in for the last inning of Shelby Miller’s no-hit bid yesterday afternoon. I’d like to think I was just a curious baseball interloper taking the time out of my day to see a small bit of baseball history. Since 1901 it’s only happened 240 times, right? I’d have stopped what I was doing even if it was a Drew Hutchison or Sonny Gray or...

Shelby Miller Loses No-Hit Bid in Ninth Inning

Shelby Miller was dominant on Sunday afternoon, but came up just short of  making history. The 24-year-old right-handed pitcher was one out away from a no-hitter, but Marlins’ first baseman pinch-hitter Justin Bour ruined the opportunity as he lined a single into center field to break up the no-hit bid. In the ballgame, Miller only allowed three base runners in his complete-game...

The Emergence of Shelby Miller

It’s no secret that Atlanta Braves starter Shelby Miller has pitched well to open up this 2015 season. Miller has been impressive thus far, posting a 1.60 ERA and striking out 39 across 45 innings. In fact Miller, who was acquired last offseason from the St. Louis Cardinals, has already been worth more this season (0.8 fWAR) than he was all of 2014 (0.5 fWAR). Miller’s Deserved...
