Andrew Miller’s strikeout rate something special

Andrew Miller already vaguely looked the part. Jarrod Saltalamacchia wanted him to go whole hog and grow a mullet. Why?

Miller’s stuff made comparisons not completely baseless — the 98 mph fastball from the left side, the wipeout slider from a 6-foot-7 frame. (Boston Herald)
