Tigers Promote Andrew Miller

The Tigers have made Andrew Miller the first member of the 2006 draft class to reach the majors. They're promoting him very aggressively, but he mowed down the Class A+ Florida State League in the five innings he pitched there. Meanwhile, Brad Lincoln struggled at a lower level, then got injured. It's certainly way too early to call the Pirates out for not taking Miller - who was widely regarded as the top talent in the draft - but the contrast between the two picks is striking.
