And Miller would've been ready to start this year (oh, and for 5 more after that).
I'm betting the Cardinals would've turned it down because they have Holliday in LF and Oscar Taveras in RF, but I would've taken them up on it. You can always find a home for a potential 40 HR bat.
Then again, if Miller does put it together, he's a no-shit ace starting pitcher. So there's that.
Maybe the Royals asked and the Cards said no. If the Royals didn't even bother, they really screwed the pooch.
