Andrew Miller has tall task

Florida Marlins left-hander Andrew Miller stands 6 feet 6, and that's before he climbs the mound to throw his 95 mph fastball. Even so, the 22-year-old Miller is progressing in baby steps with the Marlins. A six-inning outing to beat Maddux and the San Diego Padres was his best of the season, reducing his ERA from 9.12 to 7.96. That number needs to come down several more runs, Miller knows. But the latest start was a start. (Raleigh News & Observer)
