Miller to be fifth starter, but will rotation rotate soon?

The poop is that Shelby Miller will become the fifth starter in the Cards' rotation.

It had to be someone. Miller seems to have earned it.

These days in baseball, however, how long will it be before this elbow is strained, or that rotator cuff is injured, or the common oblique strain, afflicts any and every major league staff. Who starts the season and who is there within a month, or by the all-star break, are usually vastly different things, or, rotations.

It almost feels like you don't have to be a great pitcher in the majors to make an impact, but rather, a healthy one.

No ill will. Just hard not to notice.
