Wondering if there was any buzz over the local boy playing for the Pirates. He was only 32 at the time, so I doubt people were writing him off already. Here is the article with a mention of the signing, along with a little added in the comment section

I knew nothing of Miller other than his bubblegum card (no internet back then…lol).

It turned out really well. Miller was awesome. I have no idea what kind of pitcher he was. It is always fun to read about someone from my past and read “He was a sinker/slider pitcher, or he had a 95 MPH fb, etc, etc”

Other than Bob Veale’s radio ball, Vern Law’s uncanny control, Face’s forkball, etc, little was mentioned about who threw what.

Obviously it worked out well. Reminds me a little of the Lopez for Bowker/Martinez deal, two younger players(just happens to be an outfielder and pitcher too) with MLB experience for a reliever
