Open Thread 5/18: Monday Night Miller

New, 40 comments

Despite his, um, interesting haircut, Shelby Miller tossed a gem on Sunday and we should all appreciate it in tonight's off thread.

So, here we are again: Another day without Braves baseball. This time, it's a bit easier to deal with the void in our hearts since the Braves are currently on a three-game winning streak after sweeping the Marlins.

Speaking of the Marlins, they fired their manager yesterday, and they replaced Mike Redmond with their GM: Dan Jennings. Also, since this is baseball, the manager has to wear a uniform, which means we were treated to this bit of weirdness courtesy of Japanese treasure Ichiro Suzuki:

That's not going to stop being weird. Anyways, there are six games on tap tonight, and one game's already in the books. There should be a pretty good pitching duel on the South Side of Chicago tonight when Chris Sale and Corey Kluber take the mound for their respective teams. However, they're both (even Kluber) going to be hard pressed to top what Shelby Miller accomplished yesterday:

Awesome. And it was also his second Maddux of the season and we're only in May. That's amazing.

Anyways, as usual, the floor is now open. Go ahead and talk about anything below. We welcome all types of talk, so have at it.
