Wade Miley Is Lonely

Earlier today, a ruckus was caused when Boston Red Sox first baseman David Ortiz was late for a scheduled media scrum as part of the All-Star Game festivities. On the opposite end of that spectrum, we have the lone Arizona Diamondbacks representative Wade Miley.

Via HardBall Talk’s Drew Silva, we find Miley, the D’Backs’ best pitcher so far this season, politely answering questions from someone whom we can only assume based on generalizations, stereotypes and appearances, writes for a publication with a circulation of two: himself and his mother (upstairs). Making this all together sadder is that in the same frame of the photograph, we see a relative bustling of activity around Pittsburgh Pirates reliever Joel Hanrahan’s booth. Let’s just ponder that for a moment.
