Adam Miller contra Jason Davis

Euthyphro:  So no doubt you saw in the paper, Socrates, that Adam Miller has re-injured his finger?

Socrates:  Old news, lad.

Euthyphro:  No, again. If only he could stay healthy.

Socrates:  Perhaps we could say: If only he were good.

Euthyphro:  But he is good, Socrates. He throws 97—he's the best pitching prospect the Tribe has had since Sonny Siebert!

Socrates:  Would you say he is better than Francisco Cabrera?

Euthyphro:  Of course. No comparison.

Socrates:  Cabrera threw 97 as well, and had great promise that never materialized.

Euthyphro:  But Cabrera never could put it all together. He was maddening, for all his inability to harness his talent.

Socrates:  And Miller? When has he "put it all together?"  In Arizona?  Years ago in Winter Haven?  He has better control than Cabrera but is less of a pitcher.

Euthyphro:  But Socrates ...

Socrates:  There is no difference between the profligacy of Miller's talent and the waste of Jason Davis'. Or if there is a difference it is simply one of location. Did we not once have great hopes for Jason Davis? Did we not see in him the future of our bullpen?

Euthyphro:  Yes, of course, but he had a chance to throw and was found wanting. Miller never gets to the mound at all.

Socrates:  And your point is?

Euthyphro:  Well, it's not fair.

Socrates:  Life isn't fair, Euthyphro. In terms of results, Miller cannot throw strikes any more than David Aardsma. Therefore, Adam Miller cannot pitch, and therefore he sucks just as much as Jason Davis.
