    Has Miller earned the promotion or is it a move out of necessity? I had hopes for the kid, but thus far he has been disappointing to say the least. Hopefully Alderson sticks at AAA. And Lambo should get to join him soon.

      He had a rough start to the season, but he’s looked good out of the bullpen ever since.

    I DON’T have high hopes for Alderson.

    Miller may be salvageable.

    And agree with Lambo should go to Indy.
