    Not to sound like a dick or anything, but it’s about time. I feel bad that his career as a ballplayer is likely over, but he always just seemed to me as a guy that was a wasted roster spot. Would rather see guys that have a shot at being big leaguers getting the PT.

      You need org guys like him. Not everyone can be a prospect. Surprised he hung on THIS long, tho. I will miss seeing him at Harrisburg.

      Sorry it took so long to get back to this Patrick,but if you think Miles was ” wasting a roster spot “,why do you think Jeremy Farrell is still playing for the Curve ? If you think he has a ” shot at a being a big leaguer, “,I have some land I would love to interest you in !
