I couldn’t resist… This story caught my eye. This story involves the teammate of Former Fighting Sioux forward Drew Stafford; apparently his all-world goalie Ryan Miller isn’t happy with the team trading away Paul Gaustad. I have also noticed this season that Ryan Miller has become a bit of a complainer. Hockey is a business and sometimes teams trade players to get rid of salary or to better their teams.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ryan Miller and Paul Gaustad are the closest of
friends. They’ve been roomates. They’ve traveled through Europe
together. They were teammates for a decade — a run that ended Monday
when the Sabres sent Gaustad to Nashville.

Miller is not happy with the transaction.

Yes, you read that right.

Brett Myers is going from the rotation – throwing 200 innings, to the closer’s position – which means he’s gonna throw, what, 25 innings?

You talk about a waste of money – and Crane wants to dump Wandy so badly (oh yes he does)?

Myers was converted to a closer in the 07 season when he started the year badly – 3 starts – he, uh, volunteered – ahem – to go to the bullpen as there were suppoedly too many starters, Tom Gordon couldn’t close and Alfonseca wasn’t any good either and Myers ended up closing by June.

Of course, in 07, the Phils had plenty of other guys who could start.  And Myers returned to starting the next year, threw 30 games over 190 innings of 97 ERA+ ball. I should mention that naturally, his strikeout rate climbed when he was relieving, but his walk rate remained steady.
