Miley is another in a long line of starters that have attempted to solidify the starting rotation in Beantown. There have been 11 different starters used by the BoSox this season and Miley has been one of the more reliable options, especially in the second half. With a bit of luck he may even reach 190 innings for the season which would lead the team by a comfortable margin. He may not have the best pedigree going forward but he has put his name in the mix to keep a rotation spot past the 2015 season.
Dickey has been nothing short of fantastic since the all-star break. The team wins and wins and wins when he is on the mound whether he takes a decision or not. His WHIP since then is 1.07 and ERA is 2.98…which would be even better save for three starts where he gave up 5 runs…all games which were on the road. He pretty much has guaranteed returning for the 2016 season with his second half work and is most likely going to be one of the three starters in the rotation for the first part of the post season.
