Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that there had been some strife between Wade Miley and the Arizona Diamondbacks regarding his conditioning and preparation prior to his being traded to the Boston Red Sox.
While noting that the Dbacks never intended to make this public, thus it’s not a case where the team is trying to bury a guy as he leaves, he does note the disagreement that talked to Miley about it, who is not exactly pleased:
Miley thinks it stems back to disagreements he had in the past with the team’s training staff, which he felt had a tendency to go overboard in its insistence on a healthy diet for players.
Miley doesn’t think there is anything wrong with his diet and believes his work ethic is where it needs to be.
This should all be in the past, now, as no one ever gets on players about their diet and stuff in Boston.
