Chicago Cubs News: Top three ‘villains’ having their way
Chicago Cubs: Wanted – Cardinal Brad Miller the Killer
When I look over the St. Louis Cardinal roster, I can see a whole bunch of bad guys that can give us trouble, but since we are focusing on recent villains of this short season, then my first pick is second baseman, Brad Miller.
Last season, Miller wouldn’t have risen to the level of Hitman-bad-guy against the Cubs as he only played about three games against the Cubs and garner only one hit, albeit an RBI and a run. This short season Miller is putting up bad guy Joker-type stats that are nothing to laugh about.
In 12 appearances at the plate against the Cubs, Miller has six hits scoring two runs. Miller has gotten two doubles, and two home runs off of us and racked up eight RBIs already. Trying as hard as we can to crush the spirit of this first super-baddie on my list, our boys have only been able to strike him out twice and have instead tried to take the bat out of his hands by walking him some five times this season.
The real numbers that scare fans are a .500 BA against the Cubs, .647 OBP, 1.167 SLG and a Brad Miller the Killer 1.814 OPS.
How the heck do you fight those numbers Cubs fans?
Miller has certainly put himself on Cubs fans radar and is slowly becoming known all through Gotham.
One player who continues to give us a hard time from the Brew-Crew is up to his old tricks again, as we go to the next current villain on our list.
