Shelby Miller ALERT!
As I type this, Eduardo Sanchez just concluded his sparkling MLB debut by striking out 5 of the 7 batters he faced. While it occurred in a game whose outcome had been decided over an hour earlier, Sanchez still faced Big League hitters and made most (Kelly Johnson included) look foolish.
