According to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (AKA 'John Henry's Journalistic Plaything') the bidding for former Red Sox reliever Andrew Miller will start at three years and $21 million. Word is that Miller is a "strong union man" (whatever the hell that means in a multi-millionaire's 'labor' group) and will seek out the highest bidder for his services. He also wants—apparently in his non-union moments—to rejoin The Carmine Hose. Ah, the dilemmas of spoiled baseball players! In any event, the tall lefty's performances for the Orioles so far this post-season can only enhance his desirability and price tag. Will Ben Cherington be able to convince the NOG (New Ownership Group) that Miller is a key component of a 2015 bullpen? Stay tuned!
