[QUOTE]In Response to Is it a coincidence that Red Sox pitchers lead the majors in hit batsmen? : When you consider Doubront may be our most consistent pitcher at this point even though hes still raw, it doesn't make me wonder at all. The bright side is this ..... Beckett 32 Aceves 29 Lester 28 Buchholz 27 Miller 26 Bard 26 Doubront 24 Renaudo 22 - long shot to break into the staff Barnes 21 - our next impact pitcher

Very good point, and very encouraging. But please edit your OP to delete Miller's name, then I'll edit this post to erase all history referencing Steve Dalkowski...I mean Henry Miller...I mean Rick Miller...I mean Barney Miller...I mean all things Miller.
In fact, throw out all players with medieval occupation surnames just to spite -and spike - Miller's faux potential. Goodbye Darren Fletcher, adios Cecil Cooper, sayonara your sundry Millers, Joiners, Cartwrights, Stewarts, Marshalls, Harpers, Painters, Deans, Smiths (Dean Smith a double!), Farmers, Fishers, Hunters, Carpenters, Plummers (sic), Judges, Majors, and H00kers (ok, I'm making that last one up...but I'll still throw the H00kers out with the bathwater in this case).
I almost never give up on anyone, or anything....but in Miller's case that ship sailed - and sank with no survivors - many years ago.
