I have split feelings on this...I was always a Miles fan. I thought he was one of the more underrated bench players we had in recent memory (remember who scored the 2 runs on the 2 hits by David Eckstein in the '06 World Series that basically clinched him the World Series MVP? Aaron Miles). I liked his versatility, and he was a helluva relief pitcher...haha.
Anyway, he's a Cub now. They signed him at 2 years, almost $5 million...which I think is a bit steep. Oh well, So Taguchi in '07 and Aaron Miles in '08...two of the better bench players the Cards have had in awhile, gone in back to back offseasons.
