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? To look like Randy Johnson.When the Tigers made Miller the sixth pick in the 2006 draft, they did so in hoping to acquire the next Big Unit. 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)
